The Santa Barbara Foundation donated the funds to buy some 400 household goods and items for the residents of Johnson Court, the newest development of Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara for homeless veterans. Among the donations were dining tables, dressers, mattress sets, comforters, and dish sets.
The development has 16 studio units plus one manager unit. Volunteers, including council members Kristen Sneddon, Alejandra Gutierrez and Meagan Harmon, the Bucket Brigade, Housing Authority staff and members of the Johnson family, were able to furnish all apartments in the complex.
