As a way to give back to the community in this time of need, Shalhoob’s and Hospice of Santa Barbara (HSB) delivered 120 meals from Shalhoob’s to the senior living complex Village Santa Fe Apartments, a Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara property. Hospice of Santa Barbara provided 12 volunteers who helped pack and deliver the meals donated by Shalhoob’s.

“We are so grateful of Shalhoob’s generosity during this time and happy we could take part in giving back to our community’s seniors,” said David Selberg, Hospice of Santa Barbara CEO.

Another donor brought four bags of avocados and by 12:30 p.m., all of the seniors received their lunches. This is one of the many great ways the community has come together to give back to seniors given the current pandemic.

Hospice of Santa Barbara provides professional counseling, support groups, and patient care services free of charge to individuals and families who are grieving the death of a loved one or experiencing the impact of a life-threatening illness. HSB also provides counseling in its offices and on 15 local junior high and high school campuses to children and teens who are grieving the loss of a loved one.
