Anthony Garubo Salon in Maplewood Partners with NCJW/Essex Center for Women to Host an Event Honoring Mothers
Ten clients from the NCJW/Essex Center for Women (CFW) were pampered at the award-winning Anthony Garubo Salon in Maplewood, NJ on Monday, May 4th. Usually closed on Mondays, the salon opened its doors to honor these women as Mother’s Day approaches. In addition, the salon and staff donated their time and talents to help empower the CFW clients with a new look. Anything was possible, from a blowout to cut, color and even highlights, as the stylists consulted with each individual client.
The atmosphere at the Anthony Garubo Salon was truly inspiring. The stylists were honored to participate and help make mothers the priority. Moses, a stylist at the salon said, “I love what I do and it means so much to me to touch the lives of other mothers just like my own who means so much to me.” Mary Vega of Bloomfield , a client of the NCJW/Essex Center for Women commented, “ I have six children, and as a mom I am doing so much for my children and family, so to have someone give back to me is a privilege. I am being honored as a mom today and it is a wonderful feeling.”
Pat Kremen, Career Services Manager at the NCJW/Essex Center for Women explains that how you look and how you feel goes a long way toward building self-confidence. “It is our goal to help make Mother’s Day special for our clients at the NCJW/Essex Center for Women who have been struggling economically due to unemployment. These women received a well-deserved pampering and the Anthony Garubo Salon went above and beyond anyone’s expectations, bringing joy to the lives of our clients.”
