Audrey & The Beauty Lounge salute the USO

After last years Elmhurst Memorial Day Parade, our twelve-year-old client, Audrey, a student at Bryan Middle School, was inspired to help our service men and women. Knowing I volunteer at the USO center in O’Hare, Audrey and her mom reached out to me. Together we spent months collaborating with the USO to organize this fundraiser!

Audrey has designed the flyer, stickers for donors, recruited her friends to help and spent time going to local businesses to ask if they would place a donation box in their business. Audrey also worked with Jewel to set up collecting donations on the day of the parade.

Having been a volunteer since 2015, I see firsthand how these donations help our service men and women. Audrey is an amazing young lady, and I’m so proud of her efforts on this.


Please consider donating items to our Memorial Day fundraiser and honoring our troops.
