Some of the events BJ’s participates in to give back to the community that has so graciously supported us are:
Special Olympics. Every year we close both campuses and go out to Fort Lewis to do the athletes hair – getting them prepared for their big victory dance. Hundreds of athletes show up to get their hair cut, styled, make-up applied and nails polished. The students learn that giving back is important for success.
The Rainbow festival is another event we participate in.
Sister Cities International – We are involved with the Tacoma/George, South Africa sister cities organization. We have raised thousands of dollars to help children with AIDS and we help support their battered women’s shelter.
BJ’s Beauty & Barber College, in historic South Tacoma, offers complimentary haircuts to the unemployed every Wednesday afternoon.
We love what we do and hope this gives you some insight of what we do with a passion.
