Dolce Lusso recognizes the importance of helping our community by giving of our time and treasure to help those in need. We have helped with toy drives, provided products for children’s hospitals, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and sponsored local sports teams. Below are some examples of how Dolce Lusso has given to our community and the joy we have found in doing so.
Each quarter, Dolce Lusso supports Safe Passage by offering complimentary hair and nail services to those in the Safe Passage Program. Safe Passage provides supportive services to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse in York, Chester, Lancaster and Union counties. EMPOWER THE SURVIVOR. ELIMINATE THE ABUSE. ENGAGE THE COMMUNITY. ENGENDER CHANGE.
A Bravery Bag is full of items to support families with a child in the hospital after heart surgery or other heart procedures. When a child needs a heart surgery or procedure, the whole family must be very brave - the child himself/herself, the parents or caregivers, and any siblings. The Bravery Bag contains items that help the family have courage an strength through this time of crisis to know they are not alone. We see patients from age 16 up into their late 90s. Patients deal with all types of cancer - breast, colon, brain, leukemias, lymphomas, myelomas. Unfortunately, their diagnosis and treatment require somewhat of a lifestyle change. Some lose their hair or have skin issues, while others experience nausea and vomiting. Many go through depression and anxiety. Patients come once a month while some may be in the hospital 3 times a week. Bravery Bags are a way to connect to the "outside world" and patients. We, at Dolce Lusso, support by quarterly raising funds or bringing in items to stuff bags to give patients, along with a postcard for them with an encouraging note, scriptures, quotes, etc.
The mission of Children's Attention Home of Rock Hill is to provide a safe and nurturing home for abused and neglected children. Our home helps them grow from their past and into their future. The Dolce staff takes care of the hair and skin care needs for the children on a monthly basis.
Since the early days of Aveda, providing and protecting clean water has been a major passion. At Dolce Lusso, we have embraced that same passion. Each year, we partner with a local organization with one goal in mind: to make our world better. This year, we are working hard to raise funds for the Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation and Charity: Water. Both organizations seek to drastically change the lives of others by providing clean water. When a community has access to clean water, health can improve, access to food is increased, local economies grow, children can spend more time in school, and the cycle of poverty is ultimately eliminated. We are asking our guests to round up their bills, purchase limited edition Aveda products, and purchase our very own ‘Earth Month Plants’. Our staff is also showing support by wearing BLUE all month long. Any amount and effort, no matter how small, will go a long way!
