THE BRONX - A salon on East Gun Hill Road is helping to provide feminine care for the homeless to ring in the new year.

Diva Face Cares, a nonprofit group, helped organize a drive to collect handbags and toiletries for the homeless alongside Eternal Beauty of New York Salon.

The collected items will be donated to shelters or handed out personally by the organizers.
