BENEFITING: Gift of Life Family House
While future barbers & cosmologist are learning how to meet the styling needs of their communities, PB Education Center is also training them in ways to meet the needs of our society other than their hair styling needs. We believe that the beauty salons and barbershops are in tune with our communities needs, and should be trained to be able to meet those needs as well. April is Donate Life month, and staff members of PB have already partnered with Gift of Life therefore training our students to work with Gift of Life was inevitable.
April is Donate Life month & we want to help in two ways. First we would like to encourage you become an organ donor. To register as an organ donor log onto donors1.org. Second we would encourage you to assist the families of transplant patients by providing temporary, affordable lodging and supportive services to those that travel to Philadelphia for transplant related care. PB Education Center & friends wants to help the transplant families while in need. We all have family members or loved ones who have been in need of a major organs, and we want to do our part to assist in making the process of organ donating and receiving as easy as possible. The Gift of Life Family House is a non profit organization that relies on financial support of individuals & corporations, therefore we are extending an opportunity to assist a worthy cause to our friends and families. Each families who stays at the family house is asked to pay $40 per night, yet operating cost are $160 per night. Also families who don't have $40 for their stay will never be turned away. PB staff, students, & friends , we are looking to provide 125 nights of comfort for transplant families in need, will you be able to help? If so ask your stylist of barber how you can assist, or donate, or visit PBbeautyschool.com and click the blog "Help provide a home away from home" today.
