ARLINGTON — As Studio 5 Hair Design prepares to celebrate its 10-year anniversary in Arlington in January, its employees are devoting this fall and winter to showing the local community how much they appreciate their support.
“I remember the old Food Bank being in Haller Park, which got flooded out all the time, but for a while we didn’t know where it went,” Honnah Stanley, a junior stylist at Studio 5 Hair Design, said of the Arlington Community Food Bank, which is now located at 18810 59th Dr. NE. “A number of our clients use their services, and the holidays are the Food Bank’s busiest times, so we decided to give a little something back.”
“We want to raise awareness about hunger and the effect it has on all of us,” said Chris Schulberg, owner of Studio 5 Hair Design, who’s been matching all the donations she’s received.
According to Stanley, promotions for Studio 5 Hair Design’s food drive began in October, and the food drive itself is set to continue through the winter holiday season into the New Year.
“Stuffing and other festive foods are pretty popular,” Stanley said. “Canned fruits and vegetables, too. They could use diapers and pet foods. Anything they need and we get, we’ll match it.”
After the holidays at the end of this year, Stanley hopes customers will swing by Studio 5 Hair Design to ring in the New Year with the salon’s anniversary discounts and other specials.
Studio 5 Hair Design is located at 115 E. Gilman Ave. in Arlington, and is open Mondays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Tuesdays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. For more information, call 360-435-4035 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
