Organic Soup Kitchen Invites Community to Appreciation and Gift-Wrapping Party

This holiday season, the Organic Soup Kitchen invites the community to its Appreciation and Gift-Wrapping Party from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 24 at the Veterans Memorial Building, 112 W. Cabrillo Blvd. in Santa Barbara.

Please bring scissors, tape, wrapping paper and a gift to participate in the festivities. Handcrafted pizza, snacks and drinks will be served. Admission is free, and everyone is welcome.

Gifts are being collected as donations for the Christmas Day Meal. The Organic Soup Kitchen is looking for donations of new adult hats, adult backpacks, adult socks, adult gloves, adult hoodies and jackets (size XL/XXL), children's toys, and gift cards to Trader Joe's or Smart & Final. Please drop off new items at the Veterans Memorial Building between 8:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. on Mondays or Tuesdays.

The Christmas Day Meal is free to attend and open to the community. A special invitation is offered to victims of the Thomas Fire. The meal will be served from noon to 3 p.m. on Christmas Day at the Veterans Memorial Building.

The Organic Soup Kitchen's weekly contribution to the Santa Barbara community includes serving hundreds of cancer patients and survivors, seniors, veterans and more. Click here for more information about volunteering.

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!
