btc Greater Good

Here are some opportunities that help Philanthropies during this difficult time. These opportunities are open to anyone in the community.

PATH (People Assisting the Homeless)
PATH needs volunteers to prep and serve food to clients in their transitional living center. Shifts run from 9am in the morning until 7pm. To volunteer, email JB Bowlin.

SB Foodbank
They are operating emergency food sorting and distribution events to serve the most vulnerable population in the county. Note: many of the available are opportunities are in North SB County as they have a larger client population and fewer volunteers.

Dream Foundation - Flower Empower
Flower Empower has occasional need for help with stripping and prepping flowers, delivering bouquets to vulnerable community members (contactless deliveries) and making cards and signs (projects to do from home). Contact Valerie Banks to find out more. 

Bucket Brigade
Bucket Brigade is working with local neighborhoods and organizations to assemble volunteer teams to help areas of greatest need. Visit their website to sign up for local opportunities to help those in greatest need.  (Note: They request that volunteers be between 18-40 due to health risks related to volunteers over 40.)

Santa Barbara Foundation Ways to Help
The Foundation has gathered a variety of opportunities to help with collecting/donating various items and volunteering in-person at organizations across the County.

All Philanthropies
If you are able to contribute financially, all our philanthropy partners have requested that community supporters directly donate on their respective websites. Many organizations have set up emergency funds to support their clients during this difficult time. (Note that btc Santa Barbara is not able to accept donations on behalf of our partners.)

Q: Who can take advantage of these opportunities?  
A:  Anyone! You don’t have to be a btc member. These events/happenings are outside of btc League’s calendar to support local organizations.
