HRDC Gives Back to the Community

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The Human Resource Development Council was selected as a recipient site for the Men's Warehouse Annual Suit Drive, and gave two men transitioning into the work force brand new makeovers.

The Billings' Best Barbers team provided professional makeovers at their shop. Hayden Hamilton and Blaine Choyou were selected for the HRDC program.

Hamilton is from Billings, and wants to get his GED.

Choyou lives on the Crow Agency Reservation, and said this will be his first time owning a suit.

"But now people can own one you know like me, it's my first, so I'm glad to say I own my first suit. So, it's interesting. Some good people here for this program," Choyou said.

"You know being able to get a brand new suit, and look really good, and get a hair cut, I mean it's a great blessing. I'm really happy," Hamilton said.

Both men said the first thing they're going to do after their hair cut, is start applying for jobs in their new suits.
