Helping You Help Others
August’s Charity of the Month:
Scanlon’s Traveling Salon
Scanlon’s Traveling Salon is run by Eileen Scanlon, a fellow New Yorker and Licensed Cosmetologist, whose mission is to cultivate a community based on kindness, respect and equality. With its catchy slogan, Where Style Comes to You, Scanlon’s Traveling Salon serves an abundance of people across Long Island.
As a licensed hair professional, Eileen has a following of paying customers, but her real passion lies with helping those who are not able to afford a haircut or hair process. Some of the communities that Eileen serves are: the home confined and vulnerable, hospice, group homes, sober houses, assisted living communities and those who are differently abled. She always travels to her customers so they can enjoy her services in the comfort of their home or living space and she incorporates her love of social justice and advocacy into her business practice by using only vegan products.
If you wish to get involved with Scanlon’s Traveling Salon, you can! Eileen is in need of a hair stylist who specializes in ethnic hair to volunteer with her organization (scheduling is flexible). She is also looking for businesses or non-profits to become sponsors to help her fulfill her mission. Become a Scanlon Sponsor today by purchasing one of the following three packages: Bronze Sponsor: $150/month allows your company to be promoted via weekly social media mentions and gets a link on Scanlon’s website and Facebook page to YOUR company’s website; Silver Sponsor: $199/month allows your company to receive all the benefits of a Bronze Sponsorship, plus your business cards and flyers will be distributed to all clients’ homes; Gold Sponsor: $250/month allows your company to receive all the benefits of the Silver Sponsorship, plus your logo will be placed on her traveling salon vehicles. Lastly, if your non-profit is interested in bringing Scanlon’s Traveling Salon’s services on board to help your clients in need, the opportunity is available.
