United Way of Santa Barbara County is asking charitable organizations, schools, churches and community centers in need of some elbow grease to register as a project site for the 27th Annual Day of Caring on Sept. 15.

More than 1,200 local volunteers will be taking part in a variety of projects, such as beautifying facilities, sorting contributed merchandise, painting and gardening.

Santa Barbara, Goleta and Carpinteria organizations can request consideration by visiting www.unitedwaysb.org/2018-day-caring and clicking “Agencies” for instructions or by contacting Anna Gavin at [email protected] or 805-965-8591.

A nationwide effort to support community organizations by connecting thousands of volunteers, Day of Caring will run 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 15. Volunteer hours in 2017 are estimated to have been worth $300,000 in services to the community.

Volunteers completed much-needed improvement projects for more than 40 local organizations such as Page Youth Center, Trinity Gardens and Habitat for Humanity.

Volunteers can sign up for Day of Caring in teams or individually at https://volunteersb.org/ or by calling (805) 965-8591.

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!
