Girl Scout Troop Donates Cookies to Santa Barbara Rescue Mission

The Santa Barbara Rescue Mission received Girl Scout Troop No. 50786 at its Santa Barbara facility last Thursday, where the girls donated cookies to the organization.

The troop of young girls chose the Rescue Mission to be the recipient of their “Giving Goal.” All of their donations and tips this year were used to buy and donate cookies for the Rescue Mission.

The 10 Foothill Elementary third-grade girls were proud to present cookies to the Rescue Mission. The young ladies’ altruism has earned them a Girl Scout Giving Back Badge for having reached their goal.

The Santa Barbara Rescue Mission is a ministry of Christian people bringing physical, emotional, educational and spiritual resources to men, women and children in need, particularly those struggling with addictions.

The Santa Barbara Rescue Mission is the only organization between Oxnard and Santa Maria that provides hot meals and overnight accommodations seven days a week, 365 days per year. Shelter is provided every night to 100 men and 24 women. In 2012, the Mission provided 70,831 meals and 41,222 overnight stays for the homeless of Santa Barbara.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
