HAMMOND | The second annual Overstock Sale recently helped raise $1,700 for transitional housing for Haven House domestic violence shelter.

The Haven House Transitional Housing Facility provides an additional level of care for domestic violence victims. The women would be provided housing for as long as two years. The length of stay provides an extended time frame for domestic violence victims to acquire the skills and resources to be self-sufficient.

The vendors at the sale included women selling  purses, jewelry, candles, food and home décorations.

One of the women who participated was also the founder of the Overstock Sale for Haven House. Dionne Hulsey had the idea two years ago to help Haven House raise money by holding the sale.

“Haven House is a known organization in the area and I wanted to help. It’s women helping women,” Hulsey said.

The vendors who participated in the cause support other organizations throughout the year, but came together to help the women of Haven House.
