August’s Charity of the Month:
Scanlon’s Traveling Salon
Scanlon’s Traveling Salon is run by Eileen Scanlon, a 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 hair service. Eileen serves countless communities, including seniors at home, the home-confined, hospice, sober houses 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. Another unique niche that her one-on-one personal service taps into is that she can accommodate those who may suffer with environmental allergies, negating a visit to a hair salon that has chemicals and sprays around. By traveling to her clients, Eileen can ensure that they will only be surrounded by products that they feel comfortable with.
If you wish to get involved with Scanlon’s Traveling Salon, you can! Eileen is in need of an assistant hair stylist to volunteer their time with her organization. Also, if your non-profit is interested in bringing Scanlon’s services on board to help your clients in need as well, the opportunity is available.
Eileen is also looking for sponsors to help her fulfill her mission. Become a Scanlon Sponsor today by purchasing one of the following three sponsorship packages: Bronze Sponsor – $150/month allows your company to be promoted via weekly social media mentions, as well as receive 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 Bronze Sponsorship, plus your business logo will be placed on her traveling salon vehicles for additional exposure.
