HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

GlamourGals chapters meet with local seniors on a monthly basis. This allows our volunteers to make meaningful connections and friendships with seniors they interact with regularly.

DESCRIPTION

Start a GlamourGals chapter at your high school to bring a sense of community into the lives of residents living in senior homes across the U.S.! Approximately 60% of senior home residents do not receive any visitors; we want to help put an end to elder isolation. Our volunteers provide free makeovers and manicures at a local senior home, bringing the residents joy, companionship and a renewed sense of self worth. We also offer virtual options via web conferencing for senior homes who are not allowing visitors due to COVID-19. 


ITEMS NEEDED


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

Volunteers are expected to follow all safety protocols and guidelines for their respective senior home.
