YONKERS - It was spa day for a group of students in Yonkers yesterday.

Cosmetology students from Saunders Trades and Technical High School pampered their peers from Cerebral Palsy of Westchester.

The fun day of manicures, haircuts and other beauty services was set up by a Saunders teacher and an Italian Club advisor. "It's honestly a really wonderful feeling to know we can give back to kids who aren't able to live a life like we can and to help them pamper themselves and make them feel good about how they look," says Italian club member Alex Tutino.
