A Sweet Way to Make a Difference
Dexterity Salon is helping local low-income families and individuals this holiday season by hosting a collection drive for the Candy Cane Corner store. This sweet opportunity is truly a way to make a difference among neighbors and friends who are still struggling with the hardships of homelessness and unemployment.
Dexterity Salon is asking clients and the community to join in the spirit of charity by donating new, unwrapped items including: clothing for all ages, linens, household appliances and toys. Last year Candy Cane Corner helped 551 families, including 1,277 children celebrate the holidays, by providing a way for individuals and families to receive new gifts unique to their specific needs.
This year, the Candy Cane Corner wants to help even more people whose winter weary hearts are in need of warmth and support. From Nov. 27 through Dec. 23, contribute to this worthy cause by delivering your donated items to Dexterity Salon at 777 East and 300 South or to the Candy Cane Corner store at 502 West and 300 South in Salt Lake City.
The Candy Cane Corner, www.candycanecornerslc.org, is a holiday store that provides a dignified and empowering opportunity for low-income families and individuals who are participating in programs at the YWCA of Salt Lake, The Road Home, or Volunteers of America, Utah to select new holiday gifts for their families. Dexterity Salon fosters a creative and honest environment where salon artisans develop a genuine awareness of the needs and wants of guests while possessing a desire to learn and work passionately. Throughout the year Dexterity Salon donates money, time and talent to various charitable causes. Last year they participated in fundraisers for Utahns Against Hunger and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
For the month of October they also donated a portion of proceeds from retail products to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. For more information about Dexterity Salon and their community service projects visit www.dexteritysalon.com or call 801-364-1420.
