The cosmetology department is holding a Food for Beauty canned-food drive to benefit City College’s CalWORKs program by assisting students in need.

The Food for Beauty food drive will exchange a free haircut or manicure for one canned-food product. Donations are accepted at the department’s reception window according to Marcia Bonawitz, cosmetology professor.

“Just one,” said Bonawitz, “but more is always appreciated.”

The idea to do the food drive started when CalWORKs contacted the department to collaborate.

“CalWORKs contacted us and wanted us to work with them through conversations and found out they have need for non-perishables,” said Bonawitz.“We decided that we should keep it in our own community.”

Bonawitz said the department used to only hold a food drive for one week out of the semester and donations went to the Sacramento Food Bank.

“We were doing that for years,” she said.

Bonawitz  said the cosmetology department is also accepting donations of toiletries and canned pet food to help students and their pets. Students can also donate used clothing and diapers to help parents.

City College student Alyssa Brown likes the idea.

“I think that students helping other students is amazing,” said Brown. “I think it’s a wonderful thing and I love the idea that we can help students that are furthering their education.”

Cosmetology student Ruby Hernandez is one of the students who works in the salon on campus. She said giving haircuts or manicures in exchange for donations is a good deal.

“Bring in a canned food, you get a complimentary haircut or a complimentary manicure,” Hernandez said. “It definitely helps those who are struggling who feel that they do need their hair done.”

Hernandez likes being able to help students through the donations.

“It’s just amazing,” said Hernandez. “We are doing what we can to help. We are collecting cans to donate and we are helping those who are struggling.”

The hours for services are Tuesday through Friday from 7:45 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Students can make an appointment or just walk in for their free service.

To schedule an appointment call (916) 650-2958. The services are done by cosmetology students with the supervision of an instructor.
