Salon Mmm, located at 49 North Bothwell Street in downtown Palatine, celebrates its 5-year anniversary this September with a baby food and formula drive for the Society for the Preservation of Human Dignity (PHD).
On Friday, Aug. 24 until the end of September, Salon Mmm will collect donations for the PHD Baby Closet. “Donations are always needed,” Baby Closet Co-Manager, Meg Domzalski said last year, the PHD Baby Closet saw more than 2,600 visits.
“At each visit our clients receive much needed baby food, formula, diapers and other items to assist in raising a healthy family,” said Domzalski.
Individuals who make a donation to the drive will receive a Hair U Wear clip in, a feather design or a Great Lengths design. Each of the hair accessories are valued at $20 to $30 and an appointment for service is not required.
“We are excited to have been in Palatine for 5 years and giving back to a great organization is the perfect way to celebrate,” said Salon Mmm owner operator, Michelle Szczesny.
