Easy Lift Transportation is pleased to announce Zodo’s Bowling & Beyond as its newest Adopt-A-Van partner.

“Zodo's chose to sponsor Easy Lift because of the service they provide to our community," said Charity Hill of Zodo's. "After working with Easy Lift for years, they have proven to be loyal and reliable in transporting our customers safely to and from our bowling center. Together, our companies are making life easier and more affordable to those whose lives are more difficult due to disabilities.” 

When asked for a photo opportunity to establish the partnership, Zodo’s, instead opted to invite Easy Lift passengers for a free game of bowling and lunch as a sign of appreciation.

“It was a pleasant surprise to hear about Zodo’s invitation to our passengers. It’s such a pleasure to be working with a business that puts its customers first, and I look forward to many years of partnership with them,” said Easy Lift Executive Director Ernesto Paredes.

Zodo’s also provides generous discounts to various other nonprofit organizations such as Braille Institute, Special Olympics and Sanctuary House.

Easy Lift Transportation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that provides a wide variety of specialized transportation related services for the south Santa Barbara community.

The Adopt-a-Van program was created to provide much-needed revenue to support its charitable mission while also providing a unique marketing opportunity for local businesses and organizations.

For more information on the Adopt-A-Van program and other marketing opportunities for businesses, please contact Adriana Marroquin at [email protected] or 805.845.8963.

Adriana Marroquin is the operations coordinator at Easy Lift.

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!
