Marinello Schools of Beauty Helped Collect Toys for Needy Children
Eight campus locations across Los Angeles collected toys for the bi-national toy drive, Jugueton
LOS ANGELES, Calif., December 15 – Marinello Schools of Beauty volunteered to serve as a drop-off point for the Los Angeles component of Jugueton, one of the largest holiday toy drives. Eight schools in the Los Angeles area competed against each other to see which campus could collect the most toys. The Plaza del Sol campus in East Los Angeles was the clear winner.
“The students were eager to participate in this great cause,” said Betty Zambrano, campus director for the Los Angeles campus. “They came together as a team to help collect as many toys as possible for these children.”
On December 15, the top four campuses will each receive a plaque during a special ceremony at the Plaza Del Sol campus. Azteca Channel 54 will be on site filming for a special that will air on Christmas morning.
“Marinello is proud of its students and their desire to give back to the community,” said President and COO of Marinello Schools of Beauty Dr. Nagui Elyas. “It is our hope that this mindset will stay with the students after graduation and well into their careers.”
Foundation Azteca America, Azteca America Los Angeles, Foundation Hermes Music have coordinated this toy drive in Mexico for nearly 20 years and have recently been able to expand to the Los Angeles area. Schools had been collecting toys since November 22 and the toys were counted on December 10. The Inglewood, Lomita and Bell campuses were also top collectors.
