We would like to draw attention to Hairstyle Inn a Trusted Saskatoon salon and their ongoing commitment to helping the kids of low income families in Saskatoon to have a better and more magical Christmas. with their TLC @ Home program( Facebook page here)
Hairstyle Inn - TLC@Home 2012 - Looking for your HELP!
"To touch the life of a child in such a way as to love, care for, inspire, motivate and to give hope of opportunities by which they can improve their life and those around them."
The HairStyle Inn Salons Team had a desire to contribute to the community in which they work and live. So in 2006, in keeping with the Christmas spirit, the inception of TLC@home was born. Their program Touching Lives of Children @ Home has been able to provide a shoebox gift to children at one of participating city schools in Saskatoon for the past 5 years. For the last years they were able to give a Christmas shoebox gift to all the children at Princess Alexander School.
This year, with the help of our community partners, Global TV & Cameco, they will reach 3-4 schools with gift boxes for approximately 600-800 kids, including Princess Alexandra Community School, the original school. They are excited with the growth of the program and are looking to take it to the next level whereby they can set up scholarships and funding that can provide opportunities for these children that they otherwise would not have. They would be delighted if you would like contribute to the T.L.C. @ Home program this year. All contributions, in their entirety, go the children of TLC@home.
They can be dropped off at any of the Canada Safeway locations.
The TLC Gift box is a Christmas gift box that goes out to the children at participating city schools.
Each box is packed full of treasures & love and has the child’s first name on the box. This is their gift.
The schools provide us with a list of students by grade.
Following are a list of items that we recommend for each box:

Please wrap the shoebox in Christmas paper so that it can be opened to add sponsor items.
Place a post it note on the lid with gender & age of the child you have packed the gift for. ..we really NEED shoe boxes for older teenagers!!
