“We started The Salon and Spa Relief Fund because of our first hand experience in Katrina,” said Debra Neill Baker, Chairman of Neill Corporation and one of the directors of The Salon and Spa Relief Fund. “So many people we cared about were affected and we wanted to do something. Once you have been in a disaster, you have a heightened awareness of its impact. We wanted to help. And we found that many other people felt the same way. This fund has become a centralized place for our industry to help those who need it.” Since its inception in 2005, The Salon and Spa Relief Fund has awarded 43 grants totaling almost $184,000 to those affected by Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Ike and the Nashville floods of 2009.

If you or someone you know was affected by the Louisiana floods, or the tornadoes recently affecting the midwest, a grant application is available online. You an also make a donation online. The place for both is:
