Home Furnishings Offered to Fire Victims

Montecito Resident Helping While Remodeling

A Montecito local who’s remodeling his condominium is offering interior fixtures and furnishings to those who are rebuilding their homes after they burned in the recent wildfires.

With the knowledge that code restrictions and issues of insurance are making it difficult for many to rebuild their homes, the resident is reportedly responding by giving back to the community and providing an opportunity for the victims of the fires to rebuild their homes for less cost. The concern, he said, is to not only help families rebuild their homes and lives, but to also offer a green way of reusing materials with no recycling or distribution costs.

If the victims of the fires do not respond, the offer will be opened up to anyone in need. The interior fixtures, cabinetry, and appliances are available on a “make offer” basis and should be claimed within the next two weeks.
