With the start of the holiday season upon us, I wanted to give everyone a head’s up about Adopt-A-Family this year with RESERVED Salon. We will be sponsoring a family of 3: mom, dad, and daughter Jazz (Jasmin).
We had such an amazing turn out last year supporting Elijah and his mother, who were living in a shelter at the time, and I want to thank everyone who was able to touch their lives with a small gift. I know we made their Christmas all that and more!
(Pictured below, read blog here...)
Our newest family are the Guzman’s. Mom/Sandra is 54 years young, living with her husband Angel who is 59. Angel broke his foot a few years back and is now disabled. Due to the healing process and subsequent issues, they have been forced to relocate to housing projects at Cuney Homes and are trying to dig their way out of heavy debt and harder times.
Their daughter Jasmin was a blessing to them late in life, she is currently 10 years old and a 5th grader. Jazz is an honor roll student, soccer player, and part of the safety patrol at her school. (Pictured below)
Like most parents they would like to see their child eyes light up on Christmas and she has shared some things they would like/need for their daughter, and possibly themselves.
