Statements Salon Gives Back

Statements Salon owner Pam Brooks holds a box of hair to be donated to Matter of Trust.

Statements Salon in Cincinnati recently held a “Looking Slick” event to collect nylon pantyhose, hair, and monetary donations for Matter of Trust, a non-profit organization that is assisting with oil click clean-up efforts in the Gulf. The salon donated 429 pairs of pantyhose, four pounds of hair and $693 to the organization.“The response we had was amazing,” owner Pam Brooks says. “The community was so enthused and excited, because they wanted to do something [to help with the oil spill] but didn’t know what. With the event, they really felt like they were helping out, in a simple cost effective way, to support the Gulf.” “Looking Slick” is just one event in Statements’ ongoing year-round donation program. Each month fifteen percent of every $10 earned is donated to a different Cincinnati-based charitable organization.
