Pam Leven Book Nook

Donation to Sojourn

The Pam Leven Book Nook
at Sojourn Services For Battered Women And Their Children.

We lost Pam when she died from injuries sustained in a bicycle accident December 2013. We love that Pam is now honored by a spot in which women in need can be comfortable as they read and empower themselves.

This little library is room where Sojourn clients can select from donated books including many self-help and domestic violence books.

As a tribute to our longtime treasurer, Pam Leven, a supporter of battered women’s shelters, IWOSC donated $2,500 to Sojourn Services For Battered Women And Their Children. Sojourn is a domestic violence program within Santa Monica’s OPCC (Ocean Park Community Center).
