Please help us help the victims of Hurricane Sandy. We will be serving as a drop-off location for donations for the next few weeks. Items are urgently needed.
Lois Christie, the president of Intercoiffure America/Canada owns Christie & Co Salon in Bayside, New York. Her salon is located directly in a hard-hit region of Queens that doesn’t have a local Red Cross collection area. Christie is working with her local councilman and community newspapers to collect and distribute needed items.
“I have a lot of friends and colleagues in New York, and the pictures we’ve seen in the news simply don’t do justice to the pain and challenges many people are facing,” states Frank Gambuzza, co-owner of The Visage Group. “We want to do what we can to help these people get back on their feet.”
“We will be shipping items to New York several times between now and mid-December,” adds Belinda Gambuzza, co-owner of The Visage Group. “We’re hoping to be completely overwhelmed with donations, and we’ll be honored to cover the shipping and logistics challenges of having items delivered where they’re needed.”
What’s needed: Items such as blankets, warm clothing, shampoos, conditioners, baby products and toiletries will help those who are in desperate need.
Items can be dropped off at Salon Visage, Spa Visage, Studio Visage, or Frank’s Barbershop. They will then be shipped to Christie & Co Salon where local authorities are collecting and distributing the items.
