Soma Massage Therapy is committed to Denton and we want to give back every day — because we know that a healthy and strong community is vital to the health and strength of our clients too!
Each month, Soma sponsors a different local agency by providing them with tangible goods such as canned food, office supplies, diapers, etc, in order to support that particular agency’s work in our community. We’re counting on YOU to make this work, so please bring an item on their “wish list” to your next appointment — not only will you be lending a helping hand, but you’ll also get a $5 discount on your massage!
This month’s Massage-for-a-Cause partner:
Interfaith Ministries provides economically disadvantaged people with short term assistance. If you need a hand paying your electric bill, acquiring eyeglasses, collecting school supplies, or paying your rent, IFM is there to help.
We partnered with Interfaith last year during our diaper drive, and collected literally hundreds of diapers of all sizes for them to distribute to their clients. This time around, we are doing a toilet paper drive — because let’s face it: if you have $5 left, you’re probably going to spend it on milk and bread instead of toilet paper.
Here’s my personal story and why this drive is so important to me:
I remember when I (Amber — the owner of Soma Massage Therapy) was a little girl, growing up with my little brother and my hard working, single mom. She was juggling college, two small kids, and a couple of jobs, and there were many days when we hardly had enough to eat. One thing we rarely had was toilet paper, because it was just too expensive for our tiny budget. As a result, we regularly used newspaper or rags to wipe ourselves with, and my tiny little bottom often had terrible rashes and sores on it due to the unsanitary and abrasive materials we used.
When we DID have toilet paper, it was such a luxury that I remember hiding it in little wads in the bathroom so I could use it and give my poor bottom a break.
I encourage you to give generously with this drive — this particular cause has a lot of personal meaning to me, and I’d love for some little kid in Denton County to be saved from having this same experience as I had as a child using the bathroom!
- Toilet paper! (1 unopened package of 4 or more rolls)
