The students at Paul Mitchell partner school MTI College cleaned up for a good cause at the Paul Mitchell Future Professionals car wash in Sacramento, CA. After a day of scrubbing cars, the students had raised almost $1,900 for charities supported by the school. Of the money collected, $1,000 was donated to the Food 4 Africa campaign, an organization committed to feeding underprivileged children in South Africa, and the remaining $900 went to the Andrew Gomez Foundation, which provides educational opportunities and financial assistance to beauty school students and new salon professionals, and also helps fund cosmetology-related enterprises for the disadvantaged.
