With Santa Barbara Bank & Trust moving its warehouse operations to another local building, it is donating office furniture and sundry items to local nonprofit organizations. Already benefiting are The Channel Islands YMCA, Family Service Agency and the Humane Society.

“We are very pleased to have this additional opportunity to assist our local community partners,” said Randy Weiss, SBB&T’s Community Relations Officer. “These items have been very gently used and look fabulous in their new homes. We work hard to provide our communities with a combination of financial support, volunteer time, and creative in-kind giving. We believe that’s a critical factor in ensuring that they have what they need to serve so many people in our communities who need their help.

SBBT donates 'gently used' office furniture to the Family Service Agency

Family Service Agency was able to furnish its just-opened Dorothy Jackson Family Resource Center in Lompoc primarily with the Bank’s donations.

“We appreciate Santa Barbara Bank & Trust’s much-valued community partnership,” said Bill Batty, Executive Director of Family Service Agency. “With this furniture in place, our new Resource Center provides a welcoming environment for the families who depend on our services. And the savings provide us with considerable financial resources that we can now apply directly to our programs.”

The YMCA was another beneficiary of the SBBT used furniture donations

For any local non-profit groups and schools needing furniture and office items, the Bank will provide another opportunity on Thursday, September 23, 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at its 415 North Salsipuedes Street warehouse in Santa Barbara.

Interested organizations should sign up in advance by contacting Randy Weiss at randy.weiss@sbbt.com or 805.899.8448.
