TV Show Donates Toys to Red Cross for Families Affected By Tea Fire

The toys from 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' will be distributed starting at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show” has provided hundreds of toys to the American Red Cross-Santa Barbara County Chapter to be distributed to families affected by the Tea Fire.

Toys will be distributed at the chapter from 10:30 a.m. to noon Tuesday.

Affected families include those who lived in or whose incomes were dependent on the homes that were destroyed (domestic help, gardeners, renters, etc.) during the mid-October fire. Parents will be able to peruse the toys and make selections for their children.

“Wow,” said Janet Stanley, CEO of the Red Cross chapter. “Our chapter looks like a toy store. We are so grateful to ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ for remembering these families (and their kids), who are likely to be experiencing a very anxious holiday because their homes were destroyed during the devastating fire.”

Marjorie Wass is a publicist.

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.
