MSC Collecting Nonperishable Food Items

Written by Dani Vetrano

Minnesota School of Cosmetology’s Plymouth campus is collecting nonperishable food items for Interfaith Outreach & Community Partners (IOCP).

The Sleep Out is IOCP’s annual campaign to raise awareness of and funds for housing, employment, child care, food and transportation needs of families living in the eight communities that they serve.

The goal that IOCP has set for the 2014 Sleep Out is to raise $2 million and help 1,875 families.

Interfaith Outreach & Community Partners responds to emergency needs, moves families toward stability and positive change, and engages volunteers and partners in service, leadership, and capacity building.

IOCP serves families and individuals living in Hennepin County:

  • Hamel
  • Long Lake
  • Medicine Lake
  • Medina
  • Minnetonka Beach
  • Orono
  • Plymouth
  • Wayzata

Minnesota School of Cosmetology students have a dress code: everything they wear is black. This allows for our clients to distinguish who the students are. Having a black dress code is very common in many salons. Although having the all black dress code looks very professional, at times our students like to express their own style.

For every nonperishable food item a student or staff member brings in, they are allowed one article of clothing out of dress code (but remains professional). This has been a fun way for students and staff to participate and collect food items for a great cause! W

e couldn’t have chosen a better time of year to do the collection because it helps us to remember and recognize all the things we have to be thankful for.

Hope everyone has a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
