The house will also be the location of the month-long event’s Donation Celebration party on 3 to 7 p.m. on Dec. 6. Guests are invited to help fill the house with a variety of goods that will be donated to 11 charities benefiting San Diego’s community.

Donations will be accepted at SDAR’s Holiday House on that day, as well as area drop-off centers located throughout San Diego County until Dec. 8, including Coldwell Banker’s La Jolla office on 930 Prospect St.

Charities benefiting from the Holiday House include: Adopt-A-Classroom, Becky’s House, Homefront San Diego, It’s All About the Kids, Marine Toys for Tots, The Salvation Army, San Diego Armed Services YMCA, San Diego Center for Children, San Diego Food Bank, Second Chance, and West Senior Wellness Center.
