The Professional Beauty Association, the largest and most inclusive membership association representing the professional beauty industry by connecting, educating, celebrating and fighting for the community it serves, has announced the creation of the PBA COVID-19 Relief Fund under its Disaster Relief Fund umbrella.
The fund is designed to help support the licensed beauty professionals who have not been able to work and/or are experiencing financial hardships due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Funds distributed are intended to be used as emergency cash for short-term immediate needs such as food, bills, and supplies.
The PBA is calling on salon industry suppliers, consumers, and the industry itself to participate in the tax-deductible fundraising efforts for this fund.
“These funds will help pay bills, put food on the table, buy supplies, and while not necessarily large in size, will be another important part of their financial support during this crisis,” shares PBA’s executive director Steve Sleeper. “Perhaps most importantly is that this fund signifies that the industry is rallying, uniting and doing whatever it can to support our own.”
