GlamourGals volunteers grow to be collaborative and community-oriented in their personal and public decision-making.Teen volunteers in GlamourGals chapters around the country make regularly scheduled visits to senior homes to perform complimentary facials and makeovers. Meaningful connections are established through touch and companionship, bridging the gulf between the two populations. Founded and managed by Rachel Doyle, a compelling, passionate, and effective President, GlamourGals will, over the next five years, build on its past successes.
