Our city, our community
Having only recently moved from Saint John, the warm welcome and overwhelming sense of community make us proud to call the Kennebecasis Valley our new home! Hairacy's believes in helping strengthen the community by supporting local organizations and we are excited to start a new chapter with those in the KV.
Saint John Theatre Company
Saint John Theatre Company is a professional arts organization that focuses on:
1. Developing their audience to appreciate a broad range of theatre experiences
2. Training and development of regional talent
3. Improving our community through theatre
Saint John Theatre Company aims to produce the highest standard of live theatre, and the most diverse English-language theatre programming in New Brunswick, using highly skilled local and regional talent.
Cathy Hamer, one of Hairacy's stylists, has been the Head of Hair for 10 productions of the Saint John Theatre Company since 2010, most recently Pride and Prejudice and Annie. Many other Hairacy's stylists have been involved in styling the hair before each show.
Hospice Greater Saint John
Hospice was founded in 1983 as an independent community palliative care charity by Dr. Nancy Grant, a radiation oncologist at the Saint John regional Hospital. Today, Hospice Greater Saint John owns and operates both Bobby's Hospice, a 10-bed palliative care facility, and The Hospice Shoppe, an upscale second-hand boutique.
Hairacy's has provided gift baskets of Redken products for various Hospice Greater Saint John fundraisers. Hairacy's founder Jamie Anderson has been recognized by Hospice as an exemplary volunteer.
Saint John Boys and Girls Club
For over 100 years, Boys and Girls Clubs across Canada have carried on a tradition of helping young people to discover, develop and achieve their full potential as adults, citizens and leaders, by engaging them in activities that challenge and enrich their minds, bodies and spirits and nurture their self-esteem.
Hairacy's has been involved with the Saint John Boys and Girls Club through styling hair for fundraiser fashion shows, and providing a gift basket for another fundraiser.
Romero House is an eight phase Christian Ministry, consisting of a soup kitchen, a clothing bank, emergency family assistance, outreach, chapel, health care room, life skills support, and a mobile unit.
Hairacy's has helped Romero House by donating gallons of shampoo and conditioner for their clients, as well as providing a styling station for the House.
Look Good Feel Better
In 1992, in an effort to give back to the community that supports their industry, the member companies of the Canadian Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association (CCTFA) pledged their commitment to women with cancer. The CCTFA Foundation was established to deliver the Look Good Feel Better program as the cosmetic industry’s charity of choice.
Look Good Feel Better is Canada’s only charitable cancer program dedicated to empowering women to manage the effects that cancer and its treatment can have on their appearance. Created from a belief that if a woman with cancer can be helped to look good, chances are she’ll feel better, her spirits will be lifted and she’ll be empowered to face her illness with greater confidence.
Though Hairacy's has yet to identify an opportunity to be of assistance to Look Good Feel Better, we are in total support of their concept and mission.
Rocmaura was officially opened on December 16, 1972, eighty-four years after the first Nursing Home was opened on December 18, 1888, under the sponsorship of the Sisters of Charity of the Immaculate Conception(SCIC). The SCIC maintained its high standards throughout the years, providing quality care to the elderly who's needs are beyond what family and community services are able to offer.
Hairacy's has provided support for Rocmaura's fundraisers through donations and attendance. Our founder, Jamie Anderson is a former member of the Rocmaura board and is committed to continued support of this exceptional organization
Canadian Cancer Society
The Canadian Cancer Society is a national, community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.
Hairacy's founder, Jamie Anderson, is a past member of the board, and we are working toward a lasting partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society to provide support for their clients.
The Lunch Connection Saint John
Three Lunch Connection's have been established to support the students of local schools in vulnerable neighbourhoods. Currently, there are a total of 570 children registered in the Lunch Connection hot lunch program and more than 70,000 meals are served each year!
The Lunch Connection is just one of the many programs offered by the Saint John Inner City Youth Ministry. Besides providing free lunch programs, we offer other free recreation and mentorship support to the community including Summer camp sponsorship for up to 30 children.
Hairacy's donates regularly to the Lunch Connection and we are planning on increasing our involvment with this very worthwhile and much needed organization.
