SANTA ANA, Calif. — It’s an act of human kindness that young barber Damian Villanueva gives to the street vendor community in Santa Ana — a much deserved haircut, a nice conversation and a surprise.

Growing up in the area, Villanueva vividly recalls watching street vendors like Jose Salvador working hard day after day just to make enough to buy food for the day.

Stories like Salvador’s inspire 19-year-old Villanueva to give back the best way he knows how: with his passion.
