Published 3:11 pm Tuesday, August 17, 2010

Its back-to-school time, and that also means the local Thermal Belt Outreach needs all the help and support the community can give.

Artistry Above, located on 915 W. Mills St. in Columbus, has extended its fundraiser for TBO during the month of August through September 15. All of the proceeds from all professional haircuts and hairstyles will go directly to TBO.

Im so excited to have master designer Betty Smith join me in this effort. Like myself, she is a mother and we understand how stressful it can be both emotionally and financially on the family when trying to make sure our kids have everything they need in time for school to start. It means so much to us to know that TBO is doing all they can to help in blessing families who are hurting. They are providing school supplies, and serving in many other ways. Being a non-profit ministry, they can only distribute what is provided. says Mia Kuettel, Artistry Above owner.

The fundraiser days and times are Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Normal hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, Sat 9 a.m. until. Mondays and evenings by appointment.

All hair clippings are saved and shipped to designated locations to be used for making booms to help clean up oil spills. For appointments call 828-817-4820. Consultations are always complimentary. Walk-ins are welcome.
