HRG’s 60 employees contribute nearly $10,000 to local charities
WAUKESHA, Wis. — Hamacher Resource Group employees contributed nearly $10,000 to local charities in 2013, the company announced Thursday.
Not only did the company of 60 associates contribute to their community through workplace fund-raising activities, they also participated in several external volunteering efforts and activities. HRG teams organized auctions and book sales, among other internal events, to raise money for breast cancer awareness and men’s health. HRG associates also volunteered for public park and river clean-up efforts, joined run/walks, and put together a team for the Scenic Shore 150 Bike Tour, benefiting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
“We have always placed a priority on giving back, but the last few years were more focused on fund-raising and we had gotten away from regular participation in community welfare events,” stated Dawn Vogelsang, HRG president and member of the owners group. “I’m glad to see this resurgence in ongoing external volunteering, and am very proud to continue our legacy of contributing to the causes that are most meaningful to our associates.”

Infusium 23 launches miracle therapy collection
NEW YORK — Infusium 23, the "problem-hair" experts since 1924, recently introduced its most premium collection to-date: Miracle Therapy. The new line features a key formula ingredient, moringa oil, derived from a nutrient-dense plant native to the Himalayas and revered for its healing properties.
The oil pressed from moringa seeds includes numerous vitamins, minerals and antioxidants essential for treating damaged hair.
"No other products in mass retail leverage the benefits of moringa oil," said Rick Cutler, senior director at Idelle Labs. "It was our objective to create a new formula that would both differentiate Infusium 23 from its competitors and enhance the brand’s promise of fixing and preventing damaged, unmanageable hair."
The Miracle Therapy collection is comprised of five SKUs, including a shampoo, conditioner and leave-in treatment spray, as well as two new applications of the leave-in treatment: a foaming mousse and serum. Products are available at major retailers for $6.99 to $8.99 in the United States and Canada.
In addition to the new collection, Infusium 23’s packaging received an updated look for 2014. A more elegant logo and hair swoosh reflect the company’s salon heritage, and the addition of brand and sku-specific benefits to the front label aim to enhance "shopability."
