Redken and essie team up to raise more than $16,000 for City Harvest in honor of Hunger
Awareness Month

Trim Hunger

Hairdressers know that hunger is shear madness! To support Hunger Awareness Month, Redken 5th Avenue NYC teamed up with essie to host the Trim Hunger Cut-A-Thon at the Redken Exchange on Thursday, September 10, benefitting City Harvest, the world’s first food rescue organization dedicated to helping feed the nearly 1.4 million New Yorkers facing hunger.

 

The event raised a grand total of $16,310 for City Harvest in just 5.5 hours – that’s almost $3,000 per hour! A team of 65 volunteers and top Redken stylists gave haircuts, blowouts and braids to 90 guests from Manhattan to Milwaukee, while essie, also a sponsor of the event, gave guests “orange thumbie” manicures in their Roarrrrange shade as a symbol of support in the fight against hunger.

 

Trim Hunger is the most recent non-profit endeavor of Redken stylist Josif Wittnik, owner of Salon CTI and Day Spa and The Salon Professional Academy in Appleton, Wisc. Following a local project to help feed families in need in his community, Josif developed Trim Hunger to raise awareness for the cause and feed the hungry on a national level.

 

“I am so proud that Josif, who has been with the Redken family for more than 20 years, is the visionary behind such an important event that will help feed the 49 million people who go hungry every year, which is a number that is hard to even fathom,” says Leslie Marino, General Manager, Redken US.  “I’m so glad and so proud that the Redken family came together with the community to support such a great cause. That’s what helps makes this industry so special. Everyone wants to give back so badly and has such a big heart.”

 

Keep following Redken as The Salon Professional Academies (TSPAs) attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records’ existing record for the most people cutting hair at the same time on September 27 when 22 Trim Hunger Cut-A-Thons will be held simultaneously across the nation!

Trim Hunger Cut-A-Thon

In recognition of Hunger Awareness Month, Redken 5th Avenue NYC will host the Trim Hunger Cut-A-Thon at the Redken Exchange on Thursday, September 10 from 10 AM – 3:30 PM to benefit City Harvest, the world’s first food rescue organization dedicated to helping feed the nearly 1.4 million New Yorkers facing hunger.

 

Trim Hunger is the most recent non-profit endeavor of Redken stylist Josif Wittnik, owner of Salon CTI and Day Spa and The Salon Professional Academy in Appleton, Wisc. Following a local project to help feed families in need in his community, Josif developed Trim Hunger to raise awareness for the cause and feed the hungry on a national level.

 

“Hunger is a cause that my wife and I have always supported from a global standpoint, but I was really inspired to take more action after I worked with a family in my community that was unable to put food on the table following an unexpected medical incident that left them with many bills to pay,” says Wittnik. “That’s when I realized that hunger is more than what we see on TV. There are families in our local communities who don’t know where their next meal will come from, and in New York especially, we have an opportunity to make an impact on so many lives. Thanks to the support from Redken and City Harvest, the Trim Hunger Cut-A-Thon brings community members together to work toward one common goal: to raise awareness and money for hunger.”

 

Top Redken stylists will be giving haircuts, blow-outs and braids for a minimum donation of $25. Essie, also a sponsor of the event, will be offering “orange thumbie” manicures in their Roarrrrange shade as a symbol of support in the fight against hunger.

 

“It costs City Harvest just 25 cents to rescue and deliver one pound of food in New York City, and with more than 1.7 million New Yorkers struggling to afford food for themselves and their families, a little bit goes a long way,” says Leslie Marino, General Manager, Redken US.  “Redken’s Trim Hunger Cut-A-Thon will bring together both stylists and members of the community to help make an immediate impact on the fight against hunger in New York City.”

 

On September 27, Redken hopes to break the Guinness Book of World Records’ existing record for the most people cutting hair at the same time when 22 Trim Hunger Cut-A-Thons will be held simultaneously at The Salon Professional Academies (TSPAs) across the nation.
