SALT LAKE CITY, 2015-9-30 — /EPR Retail News/ — Overstock.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:OSTK), internationally known as O.co, sponsored and furnished a retro modern living room at this past weekend’s BlogPodium, Canada’s largest conference for design and lifestyle bloggers. After providing the living room as a retreat for participants of the BlogPodium, the online retailer donated the entire contents of the space to The Salvation Army’s Kate Booth House in Vancouver, B.C.
Kate Booth House operates as a confidentially located shelter, which provides a safe, caring environment for women and children at risk of or fleeing domestic violence. The furnishings donated to Kate Booth House by O.co will replace old furniture in a room designed for women to rest and revive as they gain strength to begin a new life away from domestic violence.
Kate Booth programs include daily counseling to educate women on issues such as parenting, assertiveness, the battering cycle, the dynamics of abuse, as well as provide skills training and employment assistance. Programs are also offered each week for children. Women can stay at Kate Booth House for 30 days, and the house provides refuge and support for approximately 800 women and 125 children every year.
Patricia Cuff, Divisional Secretary for Public Relations and Development for The Salvation Army said, “Thank you to Overstock for your generous support, donations like yours allow The Salvation Army to continue to provide hope, dignity and opportunity to those in need across our communities.”
