During the cold winter months many of us don’t think twice about bundling up as we head out the door. For others, grabbing a warm jacket is a luxury they can’t afford.
Two Regency Beauty Institute campuses, Fayetteville, AR and Fairview Heights, IL, recognized how important a warm coat is and were able to donate more than 125 jackets to those in need.
The Fayetteville campus collected 76 coats during the month long drive for the Children’s Safety House in northwest Arkansas. The shelter provides 24-hour emergency care for children and creates a safe and loving environment for children in need.
The Regency campus in Fairview Heights partnered with T.O.C.O. (Tapestry of Community Offerings) to donate the jackets the campus collected. T.O.C.O. assists children and families in need. Over the Christmas holiday, the campus also sponsored a family through a related program. In addition to more than 50 coats, the Fairview Heights campus donated slightly used hats, gloves and scarves, said Stephenie S., Fairview Heights campus manager.
Both campuses rallied students, staff and guests to donate to the causes. To encourage donations from clients that came into the Fayetteville and Fairview Heights campuses, those who contributed received special discounts on services.
Everyone at the campuses was able to work together and help fill this area of need. The positive impact the drives helped strengthen the Regency community and shows reaching out can help make a difference for members of the local community.
