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.

Weekly Poll
What do you think about the 2023-31 Housing Element?

The state is right to crack down on local jurisdictions, we need more housing!
Local jurisdictions should have been making more housing develop progress earlier on.
It's a significant jump, and I don't know if we'll meet the state's expectations.
The increased number is pointless, and nothing will change anyway.
