Help Stuff the Bus with Toys at December’s Holiday B2B Breakfast

Santa Barbara MTD and Peoples' Self-Help Housing are collecting gifts for needy children

Help stuff the bus at a holiday Business-2-Business Breakfast presented by the Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce and MTD Santa Barbara from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 6 at the Earl Warren Showgrounds, 3400 Calle Real in Santa Barbara.

Santa Barbara MTD and Peoples’ Self-Help Housing are gearing up for the sixth annual Stuff the Bus Campaign, which provides holiday gifts for 400 needy kids living at Peoples’ Self-Help Housing affordable housing complexes in Goleta, Santa Barbara and Isla Vista. For many of these children, these are the only gifts that they receive at this time of year.

Bring a new (value: $10 to $20) unwrapped toy (ages infant to 11 years) to December’s B2B and get a raffle ticket. Two grand prize winners will receive a downtown parking pass valued at $60. Attendees who bring a toy will also be entered to win fabulous door prizes at B2B.

Network over a hot breakfast with local businesses and guests. Learn about each other’s business and provide leads and referrals to one another. Everyone is provided with an opportunity to introduce themselves and their business in a 20-second elevator pitch to the crowd.

A breakfast from Marmalade Café will be provided, as well as coffee from Zizzo’s.

The cost is $5 for ambassadors, $20 for members and $25 for nonmembers for those registered by noon this Friday, Dec. 2, or $30 at the door. Click here to register.

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!
