DANBURY, Conn. — The students at Ridley-Lowell Business & Technical Institute in Danbury banded together to help the Red Cross with disaster relief after Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico were hit with multiple hurricanes.
The students from the Massage Therapy and Esthetics program decided to donate all profits from their public clinic on Friday, Sept. 29, to the Red Cross.
All esthetics and massage therapy teachers and students were involved in the effort.
“People who practice esthetics and massage therapy are dedicated to using their hands to help others. This fundraiser allowed our students to extend that personal help to reach those in need after the devastation from recent hurricanes.” said Lauren Kuzara, senior director of Ridley-Lowell.
Ridley-Lowell Business & Technical Institute is the oldest trade school in the nation. With four campuses across three states, it prepares students for an entry-level position in a variety of fields such as medical assisting, massage therapy, esthetics, and electrical technician systems.
