Thanks to our many volunteers and donors, HOP served 30 caregivers for a special day of chair massages, manicures, hand massages, facials, make overs, door prizes and more! Children of spouses who attended were kept busy by HOP volunteers with activities while their mom enjoyed a much needed break of pampering and relaxation!
Lunch will be served during the event a morning snack along with momosas greeted our spouses when they arrived.
We are grateful to the Church of the Open Door for providing a beautiful space to care for our caregivers as well as to the many Body Works professionals who will volunteer their services to help us thank our spouses for all that they do!
