16 Feb Julep Donations Give Women The Boost They Needed
DONATION: JULEP NAIL POLISH
LIVES IMPACTED: 100
Methodist Services provides life-enriching programs to children, adults and families as they face the challenges of limited resources, increased poverty, homelessness, disabilities and inequities in education. We provide early childhood education, school age programs, housing services, support for families, mental health and counseling services, and nutrition programs.
We received a donation of Julep nail polish through Good360. This donation was used in a variety of ways for the women in our community. We distributed the nail polishes to the women in our housing program, placed some in gift baskets for those participating in our parenting classes, and also used some as welcome gifts for women moving into these programs.
Many of the women who are part of our housing program have been through homelessness, lived in shelters, suffer from mental illness, addiction and medical issues. These and other life situations work negatively on one’s self-esteem. This donation has played a great part in building up their self-esteem, self-worth and making them look and feel better about themselves. Painted nails may not seem like much to most, but it gives these women a sense of empowerment, especially since they are not in the best life situations. Thank you very much for your generosity with this donation!
