Volunteers 2021



In this year’s annual Volunteers Issue, we talk about the impact COVID-19 has had on nonprofits, starting with the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County, which saw an unparalleled increase in a need for services. Both the number of volunteers and the hours they worked increased. Staff Writer Malea Martin Speaks with a couple of food bank volunteers, while Staff Writer Kasey Bubnash speaks with Central Coast Home Health and Hospice about how the way they serve clients has changed.
