Hair Designers donates to Serenity House

OSKALOOSA — The holiday season is about giving, and that is exactly what the staff at Hair Designers in Oskaloosa wanted to do.

“Lisa asked if we ever have nail polish we can’t use but we wanted to do more than that,” The Hair Designers owner Pam Peters said.

Peters is referring to Lisa McNulty, MHP Hospice Volunteer Coordinator, who made the request after a patient at the MHP Hospice Serenity House wanted her nails painted.

“This woman had never in her life painted her finger nails. One of our volunteers brought in nail polish and did her fingers and toes, it made her feel so special,” McNulty explained. “We’ve had patients in the past who needed help with their hair or make-up and our volunteers do all they can, but sometimes we are lacking the right tools. This donation of hair products, make-up and manicure supplies will go a long way in meeting the wishes of some of our patients.”

Also included in the basket was a monetary donation, which McNulty said will be used to purchase additional supplies.

“We strive to meet the personal needs of each of our patients on an individual level,” McNulty explained. “Sometimes that means making purchases that aren’t always in the budget. Generous donations like this make it possible for us to deliver on those small wishes that make all the difference.”
