Bring in 5 cans of food, get a 30-minute facial

Posted: Updated:
MESA, Ariz. -

A spot in downtown Mesa is offering 30 minute facials, and the procedure won't cost you much at all. It's not a bad deal -- bring in 5 cans of food in exchange for a little bit of serenity.

A free 30 minute refresher facial.

At the Aesthetics Institute and Laser Sciences in Mesa, the facial is performed by students with supervision of licensed instructors.

The food you bring in goes to a local homeless shelter.

"I know there's people who need more than we do, there's always someone out there that needs more than you and I," says Shauny Gonzales, Aesthetics Institute & Laser Sciences.

After searching for a shelter in need, AILS picked the La Mesita Homeless Shelter in Mesa, which helps families who have fallen on hard times.

"They could be living in their car, maybe they were with family and they didn't have room any longer. There are so many different circumstances you couldn't even imagine them all," says Candy Thompson of A New Leaf.

The school's goal is to collect 5,000 cans for the 500 people that go through the shelter every year.

"It's really critical, the families are working so hard to get back on their feet, so we try to provide as much as we can."

Not only is the school having a can food drive, but they have a tree where you can buy a gift for a child living in the homeless shelter this Christmas.

So come help a good cause and treat yourself to a little relaxation and rejuvenation.

The school is on Main near Country Club and the deal goes up until thanksgiving.
