fisher houseFamilies of military veterans hospitalized at the Jefferson Barracks VA Medical Center and the John Cochran VA Medical Center will get access to more food, clothes and essential toiletries when staying at St. Louis Fisher House thanks to a donation drive now underway at all Hair Saloon For Men locations in the metro St. Louis area.  Between now and the end of 2013, all 13 Hair Saloon For Men locations will be official collection points for anyone wishing to donate toiletries, gift cards or cash in support of the St. Louis Fisher House.

St. Louis Fisher House serves as a ‘home away from home’ for the families and caregivers of many American military veterans hospitalized for extended stays at the St. Louis VA Medial Center.  These families cannot afford to stay in hotels.  Since opening in July 2010, the St. Louis Fisher House has served several hundred families of Veterans and active duty military personnel.

“The need for local contributions to support our families is ongoing,” says Karen Posten, Manager of St. Louis Fisher House.  “We estimate that $50,000 to $100,000 a year is needed to assist the families who stay here.  The VA pays for staff salaries, utilities, maintenance and housekeeping. but is restricted from buying food, clothing and toiletry items often needed by the families.”

The home has 20 bedroom suites, plus kitchen and laundry facilities, to serve families who live at least 50 miles from St. Louis. Veterans admitted to St. Louis VA facilities come from throughout Missouri, southern Illinois, Kansas and Indiana.

“This is the second year we are showing our deep gratitude to wounded veterans who have made tremendous sacrifices for our country.  We are honored to serve as an official collection point for the Fisher House,” said Tom Twellman, President and CEO of Hair Saloon® Holdings, Inc., the holding company for Hair Saloon® For Men.  “We hope this campaign also raises the public’s awareness of the ongoing need for supplies at St. Louis Fisher House.”

Hair Saloon logoHair Saloon® Holdings, Inc., is the parent company of a St. Louis-based chain of men’s haircutting establishments doing business as Hair Saloon® For Men.  Launched by Tom Twellman in 1997, Hair Saloon® has 11 locations in St. Louis and St. Charles counties in Missouri, and two locations in Madison and St. Clair counties in Illinois.  More information, including store locations and items needed for Fisher House, visit www.hairsaloon.com.

Anthropedia Foundation Mission (for full description and more information visit www.anthropedia.org)

The Anthropedia Foundation aims to promote health and decrease rates of lifestyle and stress-related illness through scientific research and education.

“Anthropedia” comes from the Greek word anthropos, which means human being, and pedia, which means education. Essentially, Anthropedia aims to “educate the being” (body, thoughts, and psyche) so as to effectively promote health and prevent disorders.

At Anthropedia, we strive to help people understand how the body, thoughts, and psyche are linked to each other, the environment, and society. Moreover, we educate on how each of these factors work together to help or hinder a person’s well-being. In the same way that people need to properly nourish and exercise their bodies to develop and maintain health, they also need to nourish and exercise their thoughts and psyche to develop positive outlooks, behaviors, and resilience to stress.

Our team of educators, trainers, coaches, and multimedia specialists collaborate with experts in medicine, nutrition, psychiatry, psychology, and public health in order to provide health education tools and programs (curricula, questionnaires, workshops, courses, certification programs) for individuals and professionals seeking a sustainable approach to well-being.

We teach people ways to nourish and exercise each aspect of the being (body, thoughts, and psyche), as well as ways to improve their personal environment and social life to achieve and maintain health. Our resources help people foster healthy behavior, psychological resilience, positive emotions, self-awareness, and ecological awareness.

We are deeply committed to “training the trainers” (teachers, counselors, health educators, social workers, and psychologists) and partnering with schools, hospitals, and other organizations to help integrate our resources into their existing services. In this way, we are able to impact a greater number of communities and empower individuals of all ages to find greater fulfillment and live happier, healthier lives.
