COMMUNITY – The Spirit of Giving Back!! 

The smallest thing can have the biggest impact. As individuals, we don’t often think that we can impact our community, right?! Do you ever ask yourself, “What do I have to offer in a way to help others?” As an individual, you can have a huge influence on your community and everyone who came to The Salon Professional Academy during the month of February left a dramatic impact!

With February being “National Canned Food Month,” Melinda Meler, Director of The Academy, consulted with her marketing team and launched a campaign to give back to the residents of Whitehouse, Texas. In the spirit of giving back, the campaign would bring in much needed canned good items to the local food pantry, Philadelphia Blessings.

“We all are reminded to donate during the holidays, but spring is when donations are scarce and needed the most,” said Meler.

When “Love Your Neighbor, Love Yourself” was in full action, the academy had no idea what affect it would have on the area. The campaign spread through social media catching the attention of many. People were calling to schedule appointments and bringing two canned good items in exchange for a $7 haircut or a spa pedicure. We want to extend a giant shout-out to Brookshire’s in Whitehouse who, due to your overwhelming support, graciously donated a grocery cart to house the items. In fact, we received so many donations that they even gave us a second cart! Your generosity for the community will provide food to families in the Whitehouse area who struggle to make ends meet. Please don’t ever think your small gift or change doesn’t matter. It is a ripple effect. If you would like to make a donation to Philadelphia Blessings, please call (903) 312-7377 and ask for Ms. Bolivia.
