United Way Issues Call for Day of Caring Volunteers

Early registration deadline is Aug. 20 for the Sept. 15 community event

On Saturday, Sept. 15, United Way of Santa Barbara County will host the 21st annual Day of Caring — your opportunity to give back by helping various community nonprofits.

Teams of volunteers from across the county will gather to complete much-needed tasks, such as painting, landscaping, gardening, sorting goods and general repairs, for more than 50 nonprofits, schools, churches and local parks.

Volunteers age 6 or older are welcome to participate.

The Day of Caring will be held from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., and volunteers will meet at the Page Youth Center, 4540 Hollister Ave. in Santa Barbara, for a free kickoff breakfast before heading out at 9 a.m. to their assigned project sites.

Volunteers should park at San Marcos High School and take Easy Lift shuttles.

The early volunteer registration deadline to get your team name on the shirt is Aug. 20, but walk-ins are always welcome. Click here to register online.

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!
