The Santa Barbara California Highway Patrol invites the community to support its annual “CHiPs for Kids” toy drive.

The public is encouraged to bring new, unwrapped toys to any Central Coast CHP office, or any of the participating locations listed below, until Dec. 20.

With the holiday season upon us, the CHP wants to do its part to ensure all Santa Barbara children have a 2012 to remember. The donated toys will be delivered to local families in need.

“We hope to help as many families as possible,” public information officer James Richards said. “We take pride in serving the Santa Barbara community, not only by protecting the roadways, but helping those in need.”

Drop-off Locations

» Santa Barbara CHP Office, 6465 Calle Real in Goleta

» Golden 1 Credit Union, 5676 Calle Real in Goleta

» City Bank, 5186 Hollister Ave., Suite B, in Goleta

» City Bank, 3757 State St. in Santa Barbara

» Cal Trans, 3999 State St. in 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!
