Superior businesses highlight giving during open house – Superior Telegram

The Advanced – Beauty Enterprise team used the June 15th Open House as a time to give back. In addition to unveiling the newly renovated space at 1705 Tower Ave., owners of Vivid Beauty and Wellness, Allure Laser and Aesthetics and Studio Faus donated two baskets and a box full of styling products and needed hygiene supplies to Harbor House Crisis Shelters box. The nonprofit provides emergency housing, transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing to homeless families and single women. 070423.N.ST.Donation Pose.jpg Harbor House Crisis Shelter Interim Executive Director Krystal Brandstatter (from left) poses with business owners Jolene Sajec-Timmers, Lainy Schorr and Faustina Lehto-Timmers during a business open house. Maria Lockwood/Senior Telegraph “Our women carry nothing, usually a shirt on the back. We like to give them new items that they can use that they might not have. It puts a smile on their faces.” Krystal Brandstetter, Interim Executive Director, Harbor House Said. “We are so grateful for the community that came together for us and helped us help others in need.” The shelter is currently full. Summers are typically busy, Brandstadt said, as utilities close moratorium periods and those who use utility funds to pay rent are evicted. With the recent clearing of the encampment under the Belknap Street Viaduct, they are getting more calls seeking asylum. At the same time, rental prices in the area have risen. “That’s why low-income housing is so important to us,” Brandstadt said. “The waiting list can be anywhere from a few months to a year.” Harbor House works with women and families to build their credit scores and rental histories so they can eventually move into their own housing. “We’re trying to give them a second chance,” Brandstadt said. Companies that gave back include: Founded by Jolene Sajec-Timmers, Vivid Beauty and Wellness is a complete line of medical-grade skin care and all-natural teeth whitening products for both studio sessions and at-home post-op care. 070423.N.ST.

That’s why she chose to do business in Superior. “It was great to help out in my own small town,” she said. The business owners say they plan to join forces again in August for a back-to-school event with neighbor Serenity Spa and Salon and its independent stylists. maria lockwood Maria Lockwood covers Douglas County, Wisconsin for Superior Telegram.
