The City College cosmetology department is holding a Food for Beauty drive that allows people to donate a canned food and get a complimentary haircut or manicure in exchange. The drive began Sept. 25 and runs until Friday, Oct. 5.

Cosmetology students, under the watch of instructors, will do haircuts and manicures.
All canned donations will be given to the Sacramento Food Bank.

Appointments can be scheduled Tuesday through Friday, 7:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Food may be dropped at the Cosmetology building on the corner of 12th Avenue and Freeport Boulevard.

To schedule an appointment for a haircut, call (916) 558-2595 or for a manicure, call (916) 650-2958.
