The relief efforts of a Bayside hair salon continue to shine in the aftermath of Sandy.

Christie & Co. Salon * Spa has donated over $200,000 worth of items so far, and Cord Meyer Development has set aside space in The Bay Terrace shopping center to use as storage for all the community’s collections.

Salon owner Lois Christie said she reached out to numerous beauty and body care manufacturers for personal care item donations, from shampoo to baby wipes, to give to victims.

“I personally asked the North American president of Procter & Gamble, Reuben Carranza, and they donated a big tractor trailer of Duracell batteries and Tide detergent to Belle Harbor,” Christie said.

The large abundance of donations was stored in a 3,400-square-foot Cord Meyer storefront before they were sent to those in need.
