Two Regency Beauty Institute campuses donate to help children
Our Clearwater campus donated to The Children’s Home
Regency students spread cheer in February when the Clearwater, FL campus donated over $100 of bath soaps to The Children’s Home, a nonprofit organization that supports families and children who need of assistance in Tampa. The campus saw a need at The Children’s Home for the daily necessities like soap.
“People don’t realize that there is such a need for the essentials,” said Christie S., Clearwater campus manager.
The students raised money by selling snacks and beverages during the month of January among other fundraisers in February. The campus was able to raise $112. The money was used to purchase bath soap and body wash for the children.
The campus made a similar donation late in 2013 when The Children’s Home was nearly out of bath soap.
“They get a lot of toys around Christmas, but they don’t get the essential items like bath soaps,” Christie said.
Many of the bath soap donations featured the children’s favorite characters, like Dora the Explorer and Spiderman. Christie said the students enjoy donating to The Children’s Home because they can give children things they need but still help inspire smiles.
“The students get a lot out of donating to the children,” said Christie.
Columbus donated to the Nationwide Children’s Hospital
The Columbus, OH campus spent January and Februaryworking to raise a $250 donation goal for the Nationwide Children’s Hospital, a leader in pediatric care.
The students held garage sales and contests to help raise money for the hospital. The campus also developed a friend-o-gram system where students could purchase notes with sweets to send to friends.
“The students enjoy seeing how excited we get when one person really tries to meet a benchmark,” said Theresa K., Columbus’ performance floor manager. “Everyone is really dedicated to the goal.”
Theresa said the campus has many mothers as both clients and students, so the campus wanted to band together and focus on making a difference in the lives of children.
“They were above and beyond with their treatment,” Theresa said. “They really are warm, heartfelt and caring.”
