Hairstyle Inn and TLC @ Home in Saskatoon
TLC @ Home Saskatoon Looking to Brighten a Child’s Christmas
TLC @ Home is a Christmas gift box that goes out to the children at participating schools in Saskatoon. Each box is packed full of treasures and love with the child’s first name on the box. TLC @ Home’s mission is to touch the life of a child in such a way as to love, care for, inspire, motivate and give hope of opportunities by which they can improve their life and those around them.
The Hairstyle Inn team had a desire to contribute to the community in which we work and live; so, in 2006, the inception of TLC @ Home was born. Our program has been able to provide a gift box to children at participating schools in Saskatoon. In the first year, we started with a few classes of Princess Alexander School and have continued to grow the number of children we reach each year!
In 2014, with the help of our community partners, – Global TV, Cameco, and Cruz FM – we reached five schools with gift boxes for 800 children. We are excited with the growth of our program and are looking to add even more schools and reach more children this year!
