If you're a local stylist or salon owner who's got an itch to give back, WEAVE has an opportunity for you.
The organization, which assists victims of domestic violence, is inviting local salons to get involved in Domestic Violence Awareness Month, which is October. WEAVE seeks donations of gift certificates for haircuts and colors, waxing, facials, pedicures, manicures, massage and makeup consultations.
If it's a beauty service, they'll take it!
The donations, which will be accepted through Friday, can be dropped off or mailed to WEAVE at 1900 K St. (Sacramento, 95811; attention Angela D'Arcy). The gift certificates will be passed out to survivors throughout October.
Also, salons and spas have the chance to partner long-term with WEAVE in education and outreach programs designed to spot signs of abuse and assist victims in their recovery process. For more information: (916) 448-2321.
