AUGUSTA, Ga.- Through their anti-domestic violence program, Empire Gives Back, Empire Beauty School on Washington Road selected Safe Homes of Augusta to support this year.
All of Empire Beauty Schools donated 100 percent of their proceeds raised from all services to local shelters of their choice. Sharon Barber, The Director of Operations, says this donation is right on time for the opening of their new shelter.
Barber adds, “We’re excited we’re grateful it will help us in our servicing of the clients. The need is always there. We do want to end domestic violence, but we do have to assist the ladies that are at risk at this time.”
This is their 10th annual event and the money donated is from last year’s National Beauty Day.
The proceeds will be combined with yearlong efforts and donated to another organization this time next year.
