Montecito Fire is collecting food and toy donations for the upcoming Holiday Season.

In conjunction with the "Season of Hope" campaign, Montecito Fire is joining with KSBY and other Santa Barbara County Fire agencies in collecting non perishable food items and toys for Unity Shoppe throughout this Holiday Season.

Suggested food donations:

• Peanut Butter
• Canned Fruits & Vegetables
• Canned Stews & Chili
• Fruit Juice
• Rice & Beans
• Baked Beans
• Soups
• Diapers
• Coffee & Tea
• Dried Fruits & Vegetables
• Oatmeal
• Whole Grain Crackers

Non perishable food items and NEW UNWRAPPED toys for a child or teen can be dropped off at either of our two fire stations. (No used toys or clothing will be accepted.)

• 595 San Ysidro Road
• 2300 Sycamore Canyon Road

According to Unity Shoppe, more than 22,000 people are referred each year by more than 300 non- profit agencies, churches, schools and hospitals. In addition to providing holiday gifts for less fortunate children, Unity Shoppe also operates a year-round "Free" grocery and clothing store so people can shop with dignity for their basic needs including food, school clothing, school supplies, household goods, disaster and emergency services. Over 1,700 volunteers help a small staff of 15. Over $2 Million in merchandise is distributed annually. (www.unityshoppe.org)

We hope you and your family enjoy a safe and happy holiday season and hope you will consider bringing a gift into the station for a family or a child less fortunate!
