On Saturday, March 28, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Madison Cabulis, Eastern Center for Arts and Technology (EASTERN) Cosmetology student and Jenkintown High School senior, held a hair clinic at EASTERN’s Terwood Road campus that raised $551 to benefit Manna on Main Street in Lansdale, PA. This event was open to the public for a reasonable cost and a worthy cause. Madison and fourteen of her Cosmetology classmates provided hair,
chemical, skin care and nail services.
Madison had posters designed and printed by EASTERN’s Commercial Art students, and promoted her project through Facebook. She also informed all of her friends, family and classmates of this event, and asked them to spread the word. Madison organized and ran this clinic as her Jenkintown senior project.
“Thank you to everyone who helped and participated,” said Madison. Manna on Main Street is an amazing organization that is close to my heart. I was thrilled to be able to use my cosmetology skills to help their efforts.”
Manna on Main Street is committed to ending hunger in the North Penn region by providing food, fulfilling social service and education needs, and conducting community outreach. Through a food pantry and soup kitchen, emergency financial aid, counseling and referrals, and education opportunities, they serve those in need with the hope that everyone might be fed.
EASTERN’s Cosmetology program provides the skills necessary to begin a career in the cosmetology field. In Pennsylvania, as well as other states, cosmetologists and nail technicians must be licensed to practice in the field.
