Booksy, the innovative platform connecting beauty and wellness professionals with clients, proudly announces its partnership with Booksy Biz user, United Barbers Club for the "Heat the Streets" initiative. This community-focused campaign, running every Thanksgiving and Christmas, aims to provide warmth and support to those in need in the Sacramento, CA area by collecting warmth items to give to displaced or homeless persons on Christmas Day.
A Community Tradition Turned Movement
Originating from the compassionate efforts of two professional barbers, Timmel Pittman & Lonnie Horne, "Heat the Streets" has grown into a beacon of hope and solidarity in Sacramento. Recognizing the profound impact of this initiative, Booksy is now joining forces to expand its reach and support the cause. The upcoming event this Christmas promises to be a significant gathering for the community, continuing the tradition of providing warmth and support to those in need.
Empowering Local Entrepreneurs and Communities
"Heat the Streets" is a testament to the spirit of the Sacramento community and the power of individual initiative.
Ulrico Talamanca, Booksy GM of Americas, emphasizes, "This initiative embodies what Booksy stands for – supporting not just our service providers but also the communities they serve. We are honored to be part of an event that started from the heart of one of our own."
Join the Cause This Christmas
We extend an invitation to the Sacramento community to support this noble cause. Your contributions, whether clothing or monetary donations, can make a significant difference in someone's life this winter. This event is not only about donations; it's an opportunity to witness the positive impact of coming together as a community.
