Northbrook Spa and Members Come Together to Donate $6K+ in Gift Cards to Frontline Workers

Jul 28, 2020in news

Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa in Northbrook donated a gift card to a local healthcare worker for every member who kept their memberships open while the spa was temporarily closed due to COVID-19.

With everything going on in the world, Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa franchisee Leslie Lee wanted to give back to those on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis. Lee owns Northbrook's Hand & Stone location, and recently donated over $6,000 in gift cards to local healthcare workers with the help of her spa’s members.

After Lee had to temporarily close her spa’s doors due to the pandemic, she felt there was a way to keep her business afloat while also giving back to the Northbrook community. For every client who decided to keep their membership active while the spa was closed, Lee donated a Hand & Stone gift card to local healthcare workers.

With this special campaign, some members even offered to go the extra mile by donating the unused packages and services that they accumulated while the spa was closed. These additional gifts led to even more gift cards and services being donated.

Together, these donations totaled over $6,000 in Hand & Stone gift cards given to frontline healthcare workers in Evanston Hospital's ER and Glenbrook Hospital's COVID-19 ICU and ER.
