‘Beauty Bash’ seeks donations for homeless, low-income women

By The Spokesman-Review

Women who buy a lot of makeup often get free gifts with their purchases – a tube of lipstick, some eye shadow, a small vial of perfume.

And often, these free gifts get placed in a drawer and forgotten.

Julie Farley, owner of the Make-Up Studio, 216 N. Bernard St., is hoping women will clean out their drawers Thursday and bring in new and gently used cosmetics, toiletries, hygiene items, nail and hair products.

The “beauty bash” is part of a larger, ongoing collaborative effort in Spokane called Project Beauty Share. Its goal: collect and then donate beauty and other women’s products to homeless and low-income women who cannot use food stamps for these items.

Recipients of Project Beauty Share include Women’s Hearth, Hope House Emergency Women’s Shelter, Our Sister’s Closet, St. Margaret’s Shelter, CAPA (Catholic Charities), Our Place Ministries and The Crisis Shelter for Women & Children sponsored by Union Gospel Mission.
