The Hair Cuttery released the following announcement:
Latisha Raines, salon leader at the Watertown Hair Cuttery located on Mount Auburn Street, believes in giving back to the community. She has made it a priority in her life and encourages her stylists to do the same.
“I love my job – where else could I make people look great and also support a wonderful community,” says Raines. “My stylists and I are committed to the people of Watertown and want to be as involved and sensitive to the needs of Watertown residents and non-profit organizations as possible.”
Raines has made sure she and her stylists honor that commitment. The salon has donated back to school haircuts to underprivileged children in the Watertown community, they have collected food for the Greater Boston Food Bank and collected donations for the Home for Little Wanderers.
They hosted a cut-a-thon that benefitted Children’s Hospital and in April, during Autism Awareness Month, the salon raised money for people in Watertown living with Autism. They have also donated to the Red Cross Tornado Relief Effort and donated gift baskets and gift certificates to Watertown schools, sports teams and charities, but they want to do more.
Raines is inviting Watertown-area non-profits who might need help with fundraising to stop by and talk to her about how Hair Cuttery might be able to help. Whether donating a gift basket or gift certificate or hosting a cut-a-thon to help raise money for a special cause, Raines wants to let the people of Watertown know that Hair Cuttery is here to help.
“We’re more than just a hair salon. We feel we’re also a part of our community – and giving back is a priority for all of us who work here,” says Raines.
In addition to continuing to support her local causes, Latisha Raines and her stylists also participate in existing non-profit efforts supported by Hair Cuttery including: Dress for Success, American Cancer Society, Special Olympics, Buzzing 4 Change, National Kidney Foundation, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and Locks of Love.
