Joe’s Cares is a way for our salon and spa to take time to give back. We support several local and nationwide charities, as well as run our own wig program to help those going through tough times medically and financially. Shown below are just a few things we’ve done over the years to give back.
Look Good... Feel Better Program
Stylist Victoria and Salon Coordinator Alyssa volunteer their time and talents regularly to the “Look Good...Feel Better Program”. This is a non-medical public service program that teaches beauty techniques to cancer patients to help them manage the appearance related side effects of cancer treatments.
Because I am a Girl
In April 2014, Joe’s supported fundraising and awareness for Shepaug Valley High School Senior Project led by Melissa S. The “Because I am a Girl” campaign is part of Plan International Organization which helps girls in third world countries receive education.
Half the Sky Movement
In Feb 2014, Joe’s supported Shepaug Valley High School Senior Project led by Emily C. Her fundraising efforts benefited “Half the Sky” an organization to enrich the lives of orphaned children in China.
In Dec 2013, Joe’s employees held a cut-a-thon to benefit our co-worker Erica L. who has extensive medical bills due to cervical cancer.
Boston Marathon Fundraiser
In April 2013, Joe’s helped local artist Holly Shannon raise money for those affected by tragic events at the Boston Marathon by selling her peace necklaces.
New Milford Youth Agency
In April 2014, Joe’s staff Karen, Pam, Christine and Danielle volunteered their time to the New Milford Youth Agency “You’re Beautiful” Workshop. A workshop for middle school aged students to learn about hair and skin care.
Children with Hair Loss
Joe’s offers haircuts to people donating their hair to Children with Hair Loss. Children With Hair Loss is a non-profit organization that provides human hair replacements at no cost to children and young adults facing medically-related hair loss. Joe’s asks for a $20 donation in lieu of paying for the service; that donation goes to our own wig program here at Joe's. Please call ahead for details and appointments.
The Women’s Center of Greater Danbury
Joe’s is a regular supporter of The Women’s Center of Greater Danbury. Joe’s staff often help with their fundraising efforts and events.
