Lexie Washington, owner of Salon Kinki in Detroit, started the non-profit organization, Stylists Beating Hunger, to collect donations for less fortunate families and the elderly throughout the holiday season. This year, Washington and her staff are hosting a soup kitchen at Omars Bistro next door to the salon at 12811 W. Seven Mile Road in Detroit.
“We are excited to help feed those experiencing homelessness and the less fortunate this holiday season so we really depend on the generosity of donors to help us make this happen,” said Washington, who is requesting the donation of turkeys and/or chicken including side dishes to prepare for the meal.
The soup kitchen will be open 8-11 a.m. on Nov. 23, Thanksgiving Day. To support the SBH effort, call 313-466-0722 or email stylistbeatinghunger.sk@gmail.com. Cash donations for the purchase of food can also be made. This is tax-deductible donation and a letter of receipt can be given upon request.
