Fantastic Sams Raises $50,000 for Operation Reinvent, Operation Reinvent, an organization dedicated to Serving Our Women Veterans
Fantastic Sams held a successful fundraiser to support Operation Reinvent, a nonprofit organization specializing in helping women service members transition from the military into new civilian careers.
Fantastic Sams Salon Owners, Regional Owners and Stylists worked diligently throughout the summer months - cutting, coloring and campaigning - to help the women Soldiers who have bravely served our country. Their combined efforts raised $50,000 that will support Operation Reinvent’s Career Transition & Empowerment Program for women who are leaving military service to embark on new civilian careers.
Operation Reinvent’s unique Transition & Empowerment workshops are conducted on-site at military installations around the country. These events are designed to address the challenges faced by thousands of women who leave the armed services each year to re-enter civilian life and the competitive U.S. job market. Operation Reinvent provides the professional guidance, tools and resources they need to know their value, find new purpose and identify career paths that suit their skills, education, experience and passions.
“At Fantastic Sams our goal is to make the world a more beautiful place, and we are proud to extend this service to the women who have so boldly served our country. Through our partnership with Operation Reinvent, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to welcome military women back into civilian life with a full professional image makeover, instilling confidence and happy smiles as they step out of uniform. Fantastic Sams is proud to give back to those who have already given so much!” said Ruth Swanson, V.P. of Marketing for Dessange Group North America and parent company of Fantastic Sams.
Fantastic Sams is honored to partner with Operation Reinvent again this October at Fort Bragg, NC and Fort Hood, TX. On October 27, 100 transitioning female Soldiers will receive transformative makeovers delivered by talented Fantastic Sams Stylists and Makeup Artists. Each Soldier will receive a fresh new haircut, styling and color consultation, while makeup artists work their magic to complete her transformation.
This fall, from October 23 to November 20, Fantastic Sams is spearheading another fundraising event to support Operation Reinvent’s critical mission. Fantastic Sams is excited to continue this commitment and spread awareness of our inspiring partnership.
