At the Sage Springs Spa we do everything we can to make the Spa experience as relaxing as possible for our guests. This of course includes the use of thick, luxurious robes before and after treatments. After a year or two these robes need to be replaced with new ones. But what to do with the old ones? They may be slightly worn but certainly still wearable (and luxurious).
The Laundry Department at the resort decided to donate them to Grandma’s House in Bend, OR, a non-profit home, and outreach non-denominational ministry, providing safe, nurturing, and stable shelter to homeless and/or abused pregnant, and parenting teen mothers - the only shelter of its kind in Oregon east of the Cascade mountains. Last week several Laundry Department employees delivered 20 of these robes to the 20 young girls currently living at Grandma's House in the hopes of lifting their spirits and making them feel "luxurious" during their transitional living situation.
The robes were well received and the employees in the Laundry Department will be gathering and delivering another batch of robes for when Grandma's House has a new group of girls living in the shelter.
