Warm Wishes Coat Drive
Laura B Salon, located at 113 South Cook Street in Barrington, is hosting a Warm Wishes Coat Drive to benefit Home of the Sparrow from December 1 – December 20.
Drop off a gently used or new coat, mittens, hats or blankets and in return, Laura B Salon will hand you a $10 coupon for any hair service to be redeemed in January or February 2011. “I opened my new salon in October and feel very blessed that everything has gone so well,” says Melissa Pounds, owner of Laura B Salon. “I wanted to do something that was important to me and would help benefit my community at the same time to pass along my gratitude.”
Gently used and new coats, mittens, hats and blankets will be collected up until December 20 and then delivered to Home of the Sparrow for families in need. For store hours, please visit http://www.wix.com/laurabsalon/barrington or call the salon at 847-304-4070. Laura B Salon is located in the heart of donwtown Barrington next to McGonigal’s Pub.
