Community Thanksgiving at Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara

The Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara is planning to welcome more than 400 people to its Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner, 5:30-7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 20, at the club, 632 E. Canon Perdido St.

Montecito Bank & Trust is sponsoring the event and will provide volunteers to help set up, clean, and serve food. Food will be donated by Jordano’s and The Berry Man, and cooked by chef Jason Banks and the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara Alumni Association.

The club has hosted Community Thanksgiving for decades, giving generations of local families a welcoming place to celebrate the holiday with their neighbors and friends.

The Boys and Girls Club of Santa Barbara was founded in 1938 with the mission to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need the club the most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens.

After 80 years, the club now welcomes some 2,200 members ages 6-18 to afterschool programs including career and leadership development, year-round sports, free tutoring, and art and music classes.

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!
