SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -- In what appeared to be an act of kindness, scarves were seen wrapped around trees at a Santa Barbara park on Christmas day.

The trees were along Chase Palm Park east of Stearns Wharf.

The scarves were different colors. Each one had a note attached.

It told those in need that if they are cold and needed something warm to simply take the scarf as a gift.

A number of people are still sleeping outside, which is why the scarves are so valuable. Many are in the area of this park.

It's not known where they came from. They caught the eye of passersby who said the gift was another generous sign from the Santa Barbara community which has many offerings for the homeless and those in need throughout the year.
