Vionic Supports Survivors of Domestic Violence
San Rafael, CA (December 10, 2014) — Vionic Group’s charitable giving arm, Vionic Supports, is giving back this season to local organizations working to prevent domestic violence and help survivors rebuild their lives free from the threat of abuse.
La Casa de Las Madres in San Francisco and the Center for Domestic Peace in San Rafael will receive gift boxes for residents in permanent housing this holiday season. Vionic is working with local partners Callina apparel and EO products to gift 180 boxes, featuring Vionic slippers, self-care products and more, which will be delivered to both shelters later in the month.
“We are thrilled to have this wonderful present to give to these women,” says Shannon Cassidy, Development Associate at La Casa de Las Madres. “This is an incredible donation, the women we serve will be so grateful.” La Casa serves 160 women and their families in its two permanent residence facilities, the Mary Elizabeth Inn and the Verona Hotel.
“I am overwhelmed with happiness at the exhibition of your organization’s kind acts,” says Jeffrey Holton, Operations Manager at the Center for Domestic Peace, which houses 21 Marin County families.
“It’s important to us as a company to reach out and to connect with our community on this level,” says Chris Gallagher, CEO of Vionic Group. “We fully support these organizations and the work that they do to help women in the Bay Area move forward through traumatic circumstances and get their lives back. Our slippers are a small token that will hopefully provide these women with some measure of physical comfort this holiday season.”
