Brakeley Park Resident Receives Gift of Beauty

Rhonda Schneel, Brakeley Park Resident & Gift of Beauty Recipient

Ageless Beauty Foundation is proud to announce that Rhonda Schnell, a resident of Brakeley Park Center in Phillipsburg, NJ, has received the Foundation’s “Gift of Beauty” award.  The Ageless Beauty Foundation helps provide salon, spa and barber services to senior living residents in New Jersey, Florida, Ohio, Rhode Island and New Hampshire who are experiencing financial hardship and who may not have anyone contributing to the cost of their personal care.

“Ms. Schnell is a permanent resident of Brakeley Park Center, but had previously been a field hockey assistant manager for Phillipsburg High School and a volunteer for the Lopatcong emergency squad,” notes Yvette Barker, Activities Director at Brakeley Park Center.  “I nominated her for this award because she is a great help to activities and volunteers regularly to decorate for events.  She is also instrumental in setting up events and organizing for the Phillipsburg football team to visit the residents Brakeley.  In her spare time, she makes sun catchers for the residents’ windows and gives them out to cheer them up! I am so excited to see her get pampered and have a day of beauty. She deserves it.”

The Ageless Beauty Foundation is a non-profit organization which was created to help seniors feel beautiful, which in turn makes one feel good, no matter the age, no matter the state of health. Unfortunately, many living in senior living communities have outlived their resources and no longer have the means to pay for salon services. The Ageless Beauty Foundation has made it its mission to provide senior living residents in need with the gift of beauty.

The Ageless Beauty Foundation accepts nominations from friends, staff members, physicians, caregivers, etc.  The Foundation has a board in place that reviews and approves all nominations. Once approved, the nominated resident will receive a gift card letting them know they have received a special Gift of Beauty from a friend.
