In keeping with our philosophy and culture, we are extremely active within and throughout our communities. Our salons and our employees make countless donations of time, money, products and services to worthy charitable organizations and projects. We are honored and humbled to give back.
Sacramento SPCA/February 2015
The Sacramento SPCA is a proud partner of the Sacramento Pet Food Bank and provides pet food to local animals whose owners can't afford to buy them food. They ran out of food and desperately needed donations to keep animals in their homes and out of shelters.
Showing our love for animals and our local SPCA, we held a Pet Food Drive at our locations offering a FREE gift for a donation of an unopened bag of dry pet food.
Cure Breast Cancer/September 2014
Cure Breast Cancer, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing breast health awareness and education to all women and their families. Working through the dedicated volunteers, CBC has consistently returned over 90% of all contributions to the community through its programs and services. Dr. Ernie Bodai, CEO of CureBreastCancer, Inc, and a Kaiser Permanente Surgeon, in a continuing effort to support research, led the all-volunteer, grassroots lobbying effort to create the Breast Cancer Research Postal Stamp. The money raised from the sale of the stamp is divided between the National Institutes of Health and the Defense Department's Health Research Division, as called for by Congress.
Strands Salon and Spa was the primary sponsor of "Blues For The Stamp" at Harlow's on September 6, 2014. It was an amazing night of live blues music, food and drink and, most importantly, raising awareness and funds in support of a global cause.
Protecting Our Earth/Since 2005
AVEDA dedicates the month of April to Earth Month. With the help of our cherished guests and supporters, Strands Salon and Spa has raised nearly $30,000 joining AVEDA salons, spas and institutes across the globe for the celebration of Earth Month in raising money to protect the Earth and its people. During the entire month of April each year, we sponsor salon events and contests to raise funds and awareness to protect clean water initiatives across the globe. Our local partnerships with organizations such as The League to Save Lake Tahoe and The Clean Water Fund, allows the entire AVEDA network to help save our planet by focusing on clean water projects close to home.
In Our Communities
Albie Aware Breast Cancer Foundation/February 2016
Partnering with other local Aveda salons, we dedicated the month of February, 2016 in support of the Albie Aware Breast Cancer Foundation.
Albie Aware provides assistance for life-saving diagnostic testing, patient advocacy, prevention education and compassionate support to local individuals facing or fighting breast cancer.
Every dollar raised was provided to the organization to help fund diagnosis and treatment in our local community. And every penny helps save lives! Contact albieaware.org if you or someone you know needs their assistance.
