Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, the leading provider of real estate services in the South Bay, announced today that the agents and staff of its Los Gatos office came together to make the holidays a lot brighter for 30 local families in need.

The Los Gatos team generously raised $12,000 as part of this year’s Operation Reindeer campaign. The money will provide food and gifts for 118 children and parents. Agents and staff will now begin shopping, sorting, wrapping and delivering the gifts to low-income families.
