With over 75 agents in the Ventura office, the potential impact on the community is profound. “Our office is comprised of a group of dedicated professionals who never miss a chance to serve the communities where they live and work,” added Elliott. “The fact that it will be even easier for them to donate to charity now will bring about a positive change for numerous people in need.”
