Recently, 10 students at Minnesota School of Cosmetology (MSC) in Woodbury enjoyed doing haircuts, hairstyles, and manicures for a group of adults with disabilities. The clients are part of BRIDGE, a non-profit organization in Hudson, Wisconsin providing community-based life skills training, employment services and social and recreational programs for youth and adults with disabilities.
MSC Student Erin Riley was very touched by the kindness and appreciation her client showed while having her service done. Erin said it made her week to pamper such a sweet and considerate lady who rarely gets pampered at a salon.
Jill Hilliard, a volunteer at BRIDGE who helped organize the day of beauty, was overjoyed by the kindness from the MSC staff and students.
“I just had to thank you again for a wonderful afternoon. All of the BRIDGE clients had an absolutely fabulous time at the salon today. And every stylist was exceptional! They were so professional, kind and courteous,” she said. “Every time I walked by one of the clients, they were smiling or laughing or flat out giggling! What a truly fantastic day. Thank you so much for setting this up for BRIDGE.”
MSC students and staff members were happy to brighten the day for this fantastic group of caring and hardworking adults!
