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.

No. These are people's livelihoods on the line, during a pandemic no less.
I understand the need to regulate, but I still want access to quick and easy car washing!
