Our salon manager, Justine was inspired to help the local homeless community. She organized an event to make wellness kits to be handed out to homeless women. Our community came together at Steel + Lacquer the Sunday before Thanksgiving and packed up over 300 kits to be distributed throughout the city.
The kits contained:
- wet wipes
- Starbucks gift cards with a note saying "I love you"
- Printed note with a quote from Rupi Kaur's poetry book Milk and Honey:
"we all move forward
when we recognize
how resilient and striking
the women around us are."
The manager for the NEMA building went above and beyond to create a comfortable space for everyone involved. This event was not funded by corporate sponsors but fueled by women who went out and purchased these life necessities to make an impact on the lives of less fortunate women and help lesson the struggle. It doesn't take a lot of effort to make a big difference.
We'd love to plan more events like this, if you'd like to be involved, please reach out: firstname.lastname@example.org.
