United Way of Santa Barbara County (UWSBC) will hold its 24th Annual Day of Caring from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 19, 2015.

Throughout the day, participants of all ages will volunteer at a wide range of important projects in Santa Barbara, Carpinteria and Goleta, including making sun-dried adobe bricks at the Presidio, gardening at the Santa Barbara Zoo, painting bedrooms at Noah’s Anchorage, cleaning the coast at Arroyo Burro Beach and much more. 

Day of Caring will start with a breakfast rally at 8 a.m. at the Page Youth Center at 4540 Hollister Avenue in Santa Barbara. Volunteers will then proceed from the breakfast to their community service assignments.

With last years’ volunteer hours estimated to be worth $250,000 in services to the community, Day of Caring continues to have a significant impact on the Santa Barbara community and is a testament to the spirit of our local volunteerism.

Volunteers can sign-up online

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!
