Volunteers Adopt UBGC Westside Club for Inaugural ‘Beautification Day’

On Saturday, 45-plus volunteers gathered at the United Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara County's Westside Club for an inaugural “Beautification Day.”

Volunteers included Ocean Hills Church and the Dos Pueblos High School freshman/sophomore, JV and varsity boys basketball teams.

Groups broke off at 9 a.m. to tackle numerous much-needed projects, such as planting trees, bushes, succulents donated by West Covina Nursery; painting; and cleaning out the storage facility.

“We are thrilled to have the community come together to adopt our Westside Club,” said Aaron Martinez, unit director of the Westside Club. “Our volunteers accomplished a number of projects that make an incredible difference in the lives of our 600-plus Westside Club kids.”

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!
