Surterre's 2015 Holiday Drive: Giving the Gift of "Home" to Wounded Vets

1448487526NEWPORT BEACH, CA - This holiday season, Surterre Properties® is upholding its commitment to giving back in a unique and touching way: by furnishing homes for wounded veterans and their families.

Although wounded veterans are provided with military housing, the residences are empty when they’re discharged from the hospital—no furnishings, no comforts of a true home. Because many of these wounded vets are amputees or suffering with cancer, setting up a home can be an overwhelming task.

Through a partnership with Furnishing Hope, a nonprofit organization that provides furnishings and home goods to wounded military heroes, Surterre has set a goal of fully outfitting a total of five homes with furnishings and housewares. Below are four ways you can help the luxury real estate brokerage reach that objective.

  1. Purchase housewares via Surterre’s Target registry. Purchase items in-store and drop them off at Surterre’s Newport Beach headquarters or its Monarch Beach or San Clemente offices.
  2. Donate gift cards. Gift cards from Wal-Mart, Target, TJ Maxx HomeGoods or Costco are preferred by Furnishing Hope.
  3. Donate cash. To make a cash donation, simply write a check to Furnishing Hope.
  4. Purchase furniture or mattresses. For those interested in making a more substantial donation, Furnishing Hope needs brand new mattresses and brand new furniture—and they’ve negotiated discounted prices with Living Spaces. (Email Elizabeth Pahlavan at to learn more about this option.)

By making a donation to this very worthy cause, you’ll help make the holiday season merry and bright for a veteran and his family. Know others who would love to contribute to Surterre’s Holiday Drive? Please spread the word—just keep in mind that all donations must be received by December 11.
