All-Saints Parishioners Join M4 Churches to Clean Up Cleveland School

Nearly 150 volunteers help spruce up the elementary campus

Each year, the M4 churches (the four churches in Montecito) choose to work together on a local community project that will make a real difference in other people’s lives. This year the project took place Saturday and involved helping Cleveland Elementary School with a campuswide “spruce up.”

Activities ranged from cleaning and weeding the gardens, cleaning the planting beds, spreading mulch, clipping plant material, refurbishing student lunch tables and general cleaning.

In addition, workers spent time in classrooms helping teachers with lesson plans and also general office work.

Nearly 150 volunteers from each church — Montecito Covenant Church, All Saints-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church, Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church and El Montecito Presbyterian Church — as well as Santa Barbara City College, the Orfalea Foundation and the Cleveland school staff and PTA all joined in the fun.

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!
