This year, one of GlamourGals oldest chapters is turning eight years old! To celebrate, GG National joined the St. Joseph High School (SJHS) GlamourGals chapter at their October makeover in Brooklyn, New York. A dozen of volunteers participated, along with their chapter advisor, SJHS vice principal, Mr. John Touhey.
The chapter was started in 2008 by Julia Porter, an English teacher at SJHS who later went on to become the program director for GlamourGals. Today, the chapter has over 40 volunteers registered on GGchapters.org, and continues to maintain consistent monthly visits to the same senior home in Brooklyn. During October’s makeover, volunteers were eager to share why they joined GlamourGals.
“My English teacher told me there was a service place where you get to talk to elderly people and I was excited because I used to love talking to elderly people.” -Alem, chapter volunteer
