For more than 10 years, real estate agents from our Santa Barbara and Montecito offices have made the holiday season merrier and brighter for families at Domestic Violence Solutions (DVS), a safe and confidential shelter for battered women and their children in Santa Barbara County.
This year, the agents purchased, donated, and delivered fresh Christmas trees, complete with bases, lights, and ornaments to 15 families.
“As they do every year, our agents shopped for the trees and other holiday-themed items that give these families a sense of normalcy for the season,” District Manager Kyle Kemp said. “It’s as much a blessing for us to provide this comfort to the families as we hope it is for them to accept it.”
To ensure the holiday cheer stays with each family, they also received a large plastic bin so they could pack up and carry the decorations with them to their next home as DVS guides them through their individual situations.
