Second Graders from Girls Inc. of Carpinteria Raise $305 for Santa Barbara Humane Society

A group of second grade girls from Girls Inc. of Carpinteria generously donated $305 to the Santa Barbara Humane Society this past week.

The girls, who participated in a service learning project this summer, put on the “Cause for Paws” bake sale to raise money for the Santa Barbara Humane Society. 

They previously toured the organization and were excited to help. The girls stopped by to present the check in person.

“It’s inspiring to see Girls Inc. introduce young people to the importance of service to the community,” said Rebecca Tivang, Santa Barbara Humane Society public relations and events coordinator. “We’re thankful to each and every one of the girls for their efforts and kindness that will help us support the animals.”

Girls Inc. of Carpinteria is an education and direct advocacy organization that empowers girls to reach their full potential. Their donation will support the Santa Barbara Humane Society’s mission to serve the community, as the organization is supported entirely by voluntary contributions.

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!
