Merle Norman Hixson Collecting Donations For Hurricane Irma Relief

Donations To Benefit The Virgin Islands

Thursday, September 21, 2017

Martha Young announced Thursday that her retail store Merle Norman Cosmetics of Hixson is collecting donations for those affected by Hurricane Irma in the US Virgin Islands. They are partnering with the Seventh Day Adventist North Caribbean Conference to provide needed items for those that lost everything. 

This project is near and dear to the store as this storm devastated the Island that the store's Esthetician Cherise Cross grew up on and her parents still live and pastor a church on. The island of St. Thomas where Ms. Cross’ parents reside is one of the islands that were hit the hardest by Hurricane Irma.

The store will be collecting the items listed below to be shipped to help provide relief to those on the Virgin Islands while they work on rebuilding their community. 

Any cash donations will be used to supplement shipping costs.  

All donations will be mailed to the North Caribbean Conference of Seventh-Day Adventists on St. Croix, US Virgin Islands for distribution to all those in need:

Roy Exum: The Saturday Funnies

Every day, without exception, I find a number of “treats” in my daily dose of email.

Think of it as sort of a “co-op” for my readers to enjoy. When The Saturday Funnies began last summer, it was what I still think is ... (click for more)
