Momba launches its dorm-essential vending machine in Quincy House. Founded by a Harvard graduate, the company pledges to contribute at least 10% of profits to student financial aid.

After a stressful day filled with midterm exams, there's nothing worse than deciding to take a shower and realizing that you ran out of shampoo. This week, you can restock for free in Weld or in Quincy.

Momba, the company that recently installed two dorm-essential vending machines on Harvard's campus, has launched a sales promotion featuring free shampoos and conditioners. The promotion, which started on Oct. 17, will last until next Thursday.

Steven R. Duque '08, founder of Momba, explained that this promotion was meant to make things a little easier for stressed students.

"I remember that when I was a student at Harvard midterms were one of the most stressful times, and the first thing to go is taking care of oneself," he said.

If you don't live in either Quincy or Weld and the trip to CVS is getting less appealing as the year goes on, you can contact Duque about installing a machine in your own House or dorm.

"I'd love to expand within Harvard. Any House that is interested in getting a machine can feel free to just reach out to me directly and I'd be happy to get the process started," he said.

In the meantime, go get your free shampoo and conditioner and stay tuned for more promotions.

"The best place to find future promotions is our Facebook page. We'll be posting our promotions throughout the year," Duque said.
