This Spring I am hosting the "Candalada Cares" campaign. Last year, I collected socks for children in Winchester,Virginia. With your help we raised money for foster children. This year, I am visiting two local shelters, one in Woodbridge,Virginia the other in Dumfries, Virginia.
The Woodbridge shelter services 30 people of which 50 percent are children. The Dumfries shelter has 18 beds and is a woman only shelter.
Although the exact day of the event has not been set I know it will take place in the next 3o-40 Days and it will be on a Sunday. I will provide hair service to all the ladies in the women only shelter on-site. Currently, I am coordinating with family and other hair professionals to make sure we have enough support to make the day enjoyable.
What do I need from you? How can you help? Please check your house for the following items. Clothes you do not wear anymore, shampoo or hair products that you no longer want or need. Please contact me and I will pick the items up in advance (if is not likely you will be able to attend). Children at the shelter seldom receive snacks to go with their lunch. Bottled water, chips and fun things to go with lunch are appreciated. If you want to bring healthy snack, (grapes, apples etc) please bring them the day of so they are as fresh as possible. New socks or underwear are always welcome.
Thank You so much for your support and love. More details to follow soon.
