GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. — Spavia Day Spa’s core value and mission statement is to make a positive difference and give back to our communities. Spavia Cares is core to their every day, but Spavia makes a concerted effort each year in giving back to their communities. Last year, the Spavia community donated spa treatments to first responders and healthcare workers who were serving their communities amid the ongoing COVID-19 national emergency. This fall in our efforts to give back to our communities with Spavia Cares, there was a 100% participation from all 52 open locations.
The National Team held a give back program where locations could donate a percentage of proceeds to local charities from the sales of two treatments followed by a corporate match. Locations also gave back through hosting fundraisers and volunteering to organizations across a broad spectrum of categories. Donations and volunteering went to organizations such as supporting community development, education, health, human and civil rights, and animal welfare.
“Making a positive difference in our communities is vitally important to making change. It starts in our community, it starts with us. There is nothing better than to be a part of doing good for others. It is so beautiful to see such dedicated owners and teams supporting their communities,” says Founder, Allison Langenderfer.
Spavia Maple Grove had the highest donation among the locations that participated in the Spavia give back program. Their team donated to Maria’s Voice, a local nonprofit that was formed to honor the life of Maria Pew whose life was taken by domestic violence in April 2020.
“Thinking back to when I first heard of Maria’s story in the height of the pandemic, how eye-opening it was that this happened in our own backyard here in Maple Grove. I started following Maria’s Voice. I learned the sad truth that this is much more prevalent in our society than I could have ever imagined,” said Cristina Nolte, owner of the Maple Grove Spavia in Minnesota.
“At Spavia, it is important to give back to our communities and help others,” Cristina continues. “It is core to our values and mission statement as a company so I knew that we wanted to help but was not sure exactly how. After working with the founders of Maria’s Voice, we decided that we can help by becoming an empowered partner of Maria’s Voice making educational materials available to our employees and by raising general awareness to all those in our network and community.”
