Montecito Fire Stations Accepting Donations for Fourth Annual Season of Hope Food and Toy Drive

The fourth annual Season of Hope food and toy drive is underway. KSBY has teamed up once again with local nonprofit organizations, fire departments and several businesses for the community-wide event. 

The Montecito Fire Protection District is now accepting donations of non-perishable foods and new, unwrapped toys at either of their two fire stations, located at 595 San Ysidro Road and 2300 Sycamore Canyon Road.

Unity Shoppe’s central distribution facility serves the low-income clients of 300 nonprofit organizations, social service agencies, churches, schools and hospitals. 

Over 22,000 unduplicated people are referred for food, clothing, school supplies, furniture and basic necessities. Let’s work together to make this the best holiday season ever for those in need.  

The Season of Hope continues through Dec. 18, 2015.

Help put food on empty shelves by providing some of this season's most needed items. 

» Canned tuna

» Canned peaches

» Canned tomatoes 

» Canned chicken soup

» Canned whole corn

» Pasta

» Dried rice

» Peanut butter

» Dried pinto beans

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!
