This is a neighborhood necessity! Marshawn has a mandatory product with an incentive for kids to make good grades. This is a man with a plan for change.
OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA — If you’re unaware, according to NFL, Marshawn Lynch recently signed with the Oakland Raiders as its starting running back.
With Lynch’s new transition, he has a ton of support behind him in Oakland. Along with his support, his store — Beastmode — is doing something extra special for kids on Wednesdays.
According to NFL Columnist for USA Today Jarrett Bell, Lynch is giving free haircuts for kids with good grades.

On Wednesday, the only thing kids have to do is bring their report cards or progress reports to verify their grades.
SB Nation states: “If there’s two things that’ll make you feel good as a youngster, it’s good grades, and a fresh cut.”
This is definitely true.
However, there appears to be one stipulation. According to Larry Brown Sports, students’ GPAs have to be 3.0 or above in order to receive the freebie haircut.
SB Nation mentions as follows.
“Good grades keep you in good standing with your parents, and everyone likes the feeling of looking good. The incentive for good grades is worth the cut.”
As can be seen from Jarrett Bell’s photo, Marshawn Lynch’s store’s address is as follows:
Oakland, CA 94607
