HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- CBS 6 anchor Angie Miles surprised Henrico barber Ahmed Alazawy with a gift card as part of CBS 6 Gives.

Alazawy is a barber at Muhaimen’s Barber Shop along Gaskins Road in Henrico's West End.

He is also an Iraqi refugee who recognizes what the United States has done for him -- so he gives back to the community.

Earlier this year, he offered free back-to-school haircuts the week before the start of school.

Alazawy called Angie's visit a "good surprise."

Every Monday at 11, CBS 6 Gives honors members of the community who do so much for the community with the hope others will be inspired to pay it forward. You can watch previous CBS 6 Gives segments here.
