Lincoln nail salon makes, donates thousands of masks to healthcare workers
Sue's Nails and Spa wants to give back to healthcare workers as they continue to fight the coronavirus in Nebraska.
Nebraska Fights Back: Sue’s Nails and Spa, located near 48th and O streets, wanted to give back to the Lincoln healthcare community as hospitals in our state continue to respond to the coronavirus.
After hearing about the shortage of medical equipment, Sue Nguyen, the owner of Sue’s Nails and Spa, got to work right away. The salon donated 2,000 pairs of paper masks, which nail techs usually wear while giving manicures and pedicures, to Bryan Health earlier this week.
However, Nguyen felt this still wasn’t enough. So, Nguyen and her employees decided to make more – 2,000 more.
Now, although her nail salon may be empty, Sue and her loyal employees can be found in the back working by their sewing machines. They hope to complete the masks in the coming week and take them to the hospital to be put to use.
