Local Salon Gives Mother Of Five Holiday Makeover And More

Posted: Updated:

A Delaware County mother who fell on hard times is looking good this Christmas.  Marc Voci, owner of Marc Voci Salon in Folsom, surprised Nanette Garvey Sunday with a makeover.  Voci and his crew from his "Style Me Hired" makeover show knocked on Garvey's door Sunday morning.  The single mother of five said "I've never had anything like this happen to me".

She was whisked away to the salon where stylists gave her a new hairdo and clothing from Clothes Mentor in West Chester. Voci has been doing these monthly makeovers for the past two years. He says it's about "Local businesses teaming up, same mindset, to help these women and men in this economy and try to bring some joy to this world."

Just last month Voci surprised a woman whose home was damaged in Hurricane Sandy.  "Not only did we give her a makeover, we had her house fixed for free" said Voci.

Garvey won the makeover by filling out a card at the salon. "I thought, let me try, it could be something that could give me a new lease, you know, a new beginning for me and my kids" she said.  Garvey recently lost her home and is looking for a new job.

The new look was only part of the prize though.  Voci also arranged for Garvey to have an interview.  He also teamed up with the Milmont Park fire company to deliver Christmas presents to Garvey's children.

 

"The holiday spirit is alive and well in Delaware County" said Voci.
