Community Invited To Celebrate Second Location On Aug. 28
Ladera Ranch, Calif., July 29, 2014 – Laura’s House, a leading nonprofit dedicated to providing domestic violence education, prevention, shelter and counseling services to empower individuals and families affected by abuse, today announced the grand opening of a second Resale Store. Located inside Plaza Del Obispo at 31878 Del Obispo Street, Suite 104 in San Juan Capistrano, Laura’s House Resale Store will open its doors to the public Saturday, Aug. 9.
“By opening a new Laura’s House Resale Store in San Juan Capistrano, it will be more convenient for new donors and shoppers who live and work in this area,” said Heather Green, Resale Store manager. “Expanding our operations will allow us to raise more funds for the critically important services and programs Laura’s House provides.”
Laura’s House will celebrate its expansion of a second resale store with a public reception on Thursday, Aug. 28, from noon to 7 p.m. Community members are invited to enjoy shopping, music, food and fun in support of Laura’s House and its efforts to “end the silence” of domestic violence. A ribbon cutting ceremony with the San Juan Capistrano Chamber of Commerce, Mayor Sam Allevato, Supervisor Pat Bates and other local dignitaries will take place at 5 p.m. Hollywood Candy Girls also will provide a gourmet candy bar for guests to enjoy.
During the reception, Laura’s House will be accepting donations of gently used clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories, paintings, collectibles, books and more. Store proceeds benefit Laura’s House emergency shelter and counseling and resource programs through the resale of high-quality donated merchandise. As an act of customer appreciation, Laura’s House is launching a new loyalty card program as a way to reward repeat customers.
“Laura’s House Resale Store continues to have a powerful impact on our ability to provide the services and programs needed in the community,” said Margaret Bayston, executive director of Laura’s House. “We invite everyone to shop – and donate – to help us raise funds that allow Orange County families to rebuild their lives through domestic violence prevention and education programs.”
