Our new chapter at Delsea Regional High School had their first makeover earlier this month! This chapter was founded by Carley. There had been a GlamourGals chapter at Delsea that had not been active in a few years; Carley was inspired to start it up again after hearing about GlamourGals at a HOBY Leadership Seminar in this summer!
With about 25 volunteers at their first makeover, we are positive this chapter will be a success! Read to hear about those volunteers' first GlamourGals experiences.
"Everyone seemed to have a great time involving lots of laughs and manicures! We talked a lot with the senior ladies and they were all extremely wonderful. They all kept asking when our next makeover was! We had a fantastic first experience. " -Carley, chapter president
"Today I talked to a lady named June and learned that she played volleyball when she was in high school. June also told me that she dated the star football player, and sang opera. A numerous of times she stated how much joy she gets from seeing us, and that brightened my day a lot. GlamourGals is a great club because it allows students to meet new people and listen to old beautiful stories." -Maryssa, chapter volunteer
I had a great time tonight talking to the ladies and making them feel special and cared for. I always feel a sense of sadness for some of these people in the nursing home, but knowing that I get to give back to them makes me feel good." -Abby, chapter volunteer
"I was able to give a makeover to a woman named Marie Lou. I hope I see her again next time!" -Kaleygh, chapter volunteer
"[The makeover] went by fast, and I was sad to leave, but I'm glad we're going back soon!" -Ashley, chapter volunteer
"I loved doing this. It was so sweet to see these ladies and make their night memorable!!! I really can't wait to go back and see them all again. Something so simple as painting nails was a really heartwarming opportunity." -Breanna, chapter volunteer
