P.J. Salvage Supports Laura’s House


Irvine based P.J. Salvage, a leading manufacturer of lifestyle apparel, sleepwear, loungewear and women’s intimates, has partnered with Laura’s House in Orange County to provide comfort through cozy clothes to families affected by domestic abuse. 

Since 1994, Laura’s House has provided shelter and support for more than 4,000 women and children, growing to offer a multitude of programs to support empowerment through education. P.J. Salvage wanted to help support that mission in its own community, and on Thursday will present the Laura’s House team with approximately 500 items from the brand’s apparel line for the families who are currently supported by the organization.

“We wanted to work with a locally-based charitable organization with a high-caliber reputation for the work they do,” said P.J. Salvage CEO, Peter Burke. “Being that our business is female-focused, we appreciate and aim to support women of admirable influence and action. We are thrilled to be able to contribute to this great cause, and hope this effort brings comfort to the women who are working to empower themselves and their families.”

On Thursday, Laura’s House representatives will present the P.J. Salvage team with an overview of the work and education programs they provide, aiming to inspire hands-on involvement in the community.
