During the month of October, Minnesota School of Cosmetology participated in a food drive. Both our Woodbury and Plymouth locations took part. For every 5 items that were donated customers received $10 off of a service, packages excluded.
Our Woodbury location is donating the items they receive to Christian Cupboard at Woodbury Lutheran Church. The Christian Cupboard Emergency Food Shelf (CCEFS) provides help for those in need in the Woodbury community. There are times in life such as a job loss or illness that puts you in a situation that you need help. Our goal is to provide food for those families in this type of transitional need.
Our Plymouth location is donating the items they receive to Interfaith Outreach and Community Partners (IOCP). Interfaith Outreach and Community Partners is staffed by 880 community volunteers. The food shelf distributed 909,453 pounds of food in 2014-15. The food shelf is available to people living in the service area.
“We have had a great turn out this month for our food drive between student and client donations!” explained Afton Starr, Front Desk Manager.
We have posted signage on our entrance door as well as advertised the food drive on our Facebook page and website.
