In order to express thanks for the courageous work local first responders do in the treatment and prevention of domestic violence, Empire Beauty Schools is offering complimentary haircuts to all police officers, firefighters and EMTs at all Empire student salons next week.
During Empire’s First Responders Day on April 15, 2014, from 9 AM to 3 PM, local first responders will be treated to the complimentary services performed by senior level students under the supervision of licensed educators at all Empire Beauty School and Hair Design School student salons.
"The fight against domestic violence is an important battle for us at Empire," says Frank Schoeneman, Chairman and CEO of Empire Education Group. "Through our Empire Gives Back initiative, we have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash and donations for local women’s shelters across the country. Since 2007, Empire Education Group has been supporting the fight against domestic violence through Empire Gives Back as well as Cut it Out, a training program exclusively for salon professionals helping them recognize possible signs of abuse in clients." In addition to fundraising efforts, Empire also offers free beauty services to shelter residents and their children, as well as educational endowments.
