Chicago, IL (BlackNews.com) — In a year full of pivotal endeavors, SCurl adds a partnership with Steve Harveyâ€™s National Mentoring Camp for Young Men, to its list.
Started in 2009 by radio, TV and film personality Steve Harvey, the national mentoring camp is held during the Fatherâ€™s Day weekend at Harveyâ€™s private ranch. Its goal is to teach young men from single-mother homes, the essential principles of manhood and dream-building.
According to Pamela Richardson, SCurlâ€™s Senior Brand Manager, the partnership was a â€œnatural allianceâ€. Says Richardson, â€œLuster Products has been giving back to the community for over 50 years â€“ particularly to those programs dealing with the betterment of our youth. We believe that the same principles Mr. Harvey teaches about self-respect and self-confidence, begin with a positive self-image.. and good grooming is the physical expression of self-worth. Thatâ€™s what SCurl is all about.â€
SCurl will be making a product donation to the participants of the mentoring camp. Included will be daily care and styling products to help encourage and promote life-long grooming habits.
Luster Products is one of the few remaining African-American hair care companies in the U.S. Founded in 1957 by barber and hairstylist, Fred Luster, Sr., the company has expanded to markets such as the U.K., South Africa, Germany and Holland, and has a workforce of over 400 people in its south-side Chicago location.
