What’s amazing is that out of all of the people associated with the Arrojo team, only one, an Arrojo Apprentice, suffered major damage to her home out in Long Island. The team has come together to offer that person’s family assistance and support.
And now Arrojo has organized a charity drive to help hurricane victims during the month of November. All product sales proceeds will be donated to the Hurricane Sandy Relief Foundation, www.sandyrelief.org. They are hoping to raise $20,000.
At this time, Arrojo, the salon, the school, and the product distribution are all back in business. The mood is one of relief—the power is on, clients are back in the chairs, and everyone is ready to get back to normal.
“The overwhelming feeling in the salon is one of community. During this storm and the aftermath, the group became more important than the individual. We were so touched by how many people cared and reached out to us. Offers of food, shelter, clothing—we were so well supported. When I look back to last week, it’s like time stood still, and now we’re moving ahead again.”
