SOUTH WEYMOUTH, MA…
For 16 years, Ken Mather, owner of South Weymouth Barber Shop, has been in the business of making others look good. But during that time, he has placed an emphasis on making others feel good as well through a number of charitable endeavors, including an annual Toys for Tots drive. For those efforts, Mather has been named the recipient of The Smiling Neighbor award given by South Weymouth Dentist Dr. Richard Wolfert, DDM.
“Ken is a great barber and runs a great shop. But what I’ve always admired about him is that he utilizes the barbershop’s place as a gathering spot to help out a number of great causes in the community he serves,” said Dr. Wolfert, whose dental practice is located at 1121 Main Street in South Weymouth. “He is a most deserving winner of our Smiling Neighbor award.”
In addition to the annual Toys for Tots drive, Mather hosts an annual hair-cutting fundraiser to benefit St. Francis Xavier School in Weymouth. This fundraiser involves opening up his shop on his off day of Monday to cut hair for this cause. The South Weymouth Barber Shop is also an annual sponsor of a team in the Weymouth Youth Basketball League and regularly supports the Frederick C. Murphy Elementary School and Abigail Adams Middle School, as well as the Weymouth High School hockey and football teams.
A resident of Taunton, Mather has a 21-year-old son Kenny, who is currently serving in the U.S. Army overseas in Dubai. Mather is also a Marine veteran.
For being selected as the Smiling Neighbor, Mather had the choice of receiving a $50 gift card to Stockholders or a Sonicare Easy Clean model (Ken chose Stockholders).
Said Mather, “The people of Weymouth have been very good to us over the years. The fundraising drives are just our way of saying ‘thank you’. I appreciate Dr. Wolfert for recognizing those efforts.”
