Polished Nail Salon raised $1,900 in November for Cayman Islands Meals on Wheels in a recent promotion which offered 20 percent off a service with a $10 donation to the charity.
Salon owner Cindy Oostvogels said in a news release, “If we can do it, any business can do it, and they should.
“I hope our donation will inspire other small businesses in our community to make a donation, or develop a similar initiative in order make a difference,” she said.
Erin Bodden, general manager for Meals on Wheels, expressed thanks for the donation, which will help provide 380 meals for needy seniors.
Meals on Wheels celebrated its 20th anniversary in Cayman earlier this year.
The not-for-profit organization has about 100 volunteers who serve meals to more than 200 people in Cayman, five days per week.
The group has kitchens in every district of Grand Cayman except for West Bay, and it hopes to establish a kitchen there soon. The group serves 20 people in West Bay but estimates there are 150 people in that district who need assistance but are currently unserved.
