TMSG: Local school is giving back to elderly in the community

News

Older adults and people with mobility issues can have a difficult time leaving the Ingham County Medical Care Facility and an even harder time getting out to go pamper themselves, but one group of local students is giving back and bringing the pampering to them.

Twice a month the cosmetology student at Douglas J Aveda Institute come in and paint nails and get to know the names and faces of the people they are helping. Students have been volunteering for the opportunity for six years now.

The older ladies get a mini manicure and the younger ladies get to practice in a profession that revolves around making clients feel great.
