Green Bay salon school give back to caregivers
GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- A Green Bay salon school is making a difference.
The Paul Mitchell School is partnering with the Alzheimer's Association this month to raise awareness and funds to fight the disease.
Caring for someone with Alzheimer's can take a lot of time, money and patience, so Wednesday, the focus was on those who provide that help.
Free manicures and pedicures were just some of the perks for caregivers.
According to the Greater Wisconsin Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, 193,000 people in the state are providing care for a loved one with Alzheimer's or dementia.
"Those caregivers do so much. It's such a hard thing. I watch my family go through it with my grandma and it's really, really hard. They deserve so much credit and so much gratitude and appreciation and what a great organization that we can partner with. We're so thankful. Especially this time of year, being so thankful," said Amy Shadian of Paul Mitchell School Salon.
The salon is also holding $1 raffles this month for gift baskets and donating the proceeds to the Alzheimer's Association.
