Help Build a Salon at the Senior Center!
The Friends of the Romulus Senior Center have a goal to turn an extra storage room at the Senior Center into a salon. Many senior citizens require assistance with necessary hygiene services such as haircuts, hair washing, feet examinations and nail trimming (especially for those with diabetes). Building a salon to offer these services at discounted prices in a convenient location is the dream for the Friends group. Anyone wishing to make a donation can write a check to "Friends of the Romulus Senior Center" and deliver it to the Senior Center during regular business hours. Friends of the Romulus Senior Center is a 501c3 non-profit organization, any donations are tax deductible.
