Walker Furniture & Mattress has supported The Salvation Army Southern Nevada’s SEEDS (Saving, Empowering, Educating and restoring DreamS) of Hope program, which serves victims of human trafficking, by helping to furnish two apartments.
With a grant from the MGM Foundation stipulating the funding was for renovating and furnishing two “safe houses,” Walker Furniture partnered with The Salvation Army to accomplish the goal. The location of these homes cannot be shared in order to protect the security and anonymity of the program’s participants.
“While coronavirus is making life difficult for everyone, it is particularly challenging for the most vulnerable citizens in our valley,” said Walker Furniture marketing director Patti Gerace. “Helping those less fortunate has always been a priority for our company. We are even planning again this year to hold our ‘Home For The Holidays’ program for the 27th year and will furnish 35 homes for families in need.”
