In autumn 2020, one of our salon guests informed us that the school she teaches at in our community was in need of support. She explained that she teaches in an under-served area of our city, and that many of their students are lacking the proper winter wear for the upcoming Chicago winter. She explained the hardships these children experience on a regular basis including some not even having meals at home. We wanted to help out in any way and decided to do a coat & winter wear donation drive within our salon! We were able to collect a large amount of new and gently used coats, sweatshirts, socks, hats, gloves and scarves! These items were picked up and taken directly to the school to be handed out to families in need. One family in particular was only able to provide Christmas gifts for their children by gifting them the items from our drive, and we’re so overjoyed to have these items. It warmed our hearts that we were able to make such an impact in these families holiday season and support our local community. We plan to continue supporting our local community with philanthropic events during the holiday season each year!
November/December of 2020. Our salon will continue a philanthropic or donation based campaign in our local community every holiday season.
