The Laurel Springs, NJ, beauty school hosted their 100 Days of Empire open house celebration with a check presentation to the Camden County Women’s Center in the amount of $914.25.
The shelter representatives were appreciative for the funds. They also talked to the students and offered information about the shelter and the different types of domestic violence, as well as statistics about domestic violence. They stressed to the students that it is important for them to know the signs of domestic violence, as cosmetologists their clients will confide in them-making the students a key first point of contact for victims.
