Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) August 04, 2012
Salon Khouri, an award winning Fairfax hair salon, will be collecting new backpacks for the Fairfax non-profit organization, Our Daily Bread. The focus of Our Daily Bread is to help ease the plight of low income residents in Fairfax County, Virginia. They draw volunteers from local faith-based groups, community organizations, local businesses, schools and universities.
Our Daily Bread's programs are designed to help individuals and families in the Fairfax County area who are struggling to make ends meet. Several programs include a back to school program, wherein Our Daily Bread provides school supplies to children in-need, as well as a financial literacy program that teaches budgeting and credit classes to help teach families how to make every dollar they have work for them.
"We are so pleased to be once again partnering with Our Daily Bread to help local families in-need," states Jennifer Elkhouri, co-owner of Salon Khouri. "We are going into our seventh year of operations and are so happy to be a part of the Northern Virginia community. We feel so strongly about finding ways to give back. We read about the great programs Our Daily Bread offers to Northern Virginia residents and wanted to do something to help them out."
Since opening their doors in 2005,fairfax hair salon Salon Khouri has looked for ways to give back to the community. To date, the salon has raised over $7300 for pediatric cancer research funding through their yearly Cut-a-Thon to "cut out" neuroblastoma in honor of Ashburn, VA resident Taylor Love. Salon Khouri also holds an annual "Pink Hair for Hope" campaign where proceeds raised go toward Breast Cancer Research. To date, the salon has raised $2620 toward this program. Other community programs include an annual food drive, a Color for Hearts program, a recycling program, and participation in the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program which donates wigs made from donated hair to cancer patients.
"Probably one of the most unique programs we've participated in was with Matter of Trust where we were sweeping up hair clippings and mailing them to them to make hair booms to clean up the oil spill in the gulf. It was an amazingly simple concept that worked," stated Jennifer Elkhouri.
