Holiday Toy Parade
(Santa Barbara, CA) – Formerly known as Stuff the Bus, this year’s Holiday Toy Parade includes MTD’s new Holiday Electric Shuttle stopping at various donation sites throughout downtown Santa Barbara. PSHH board, staff and supporters, along with elected officials, will ride along helping to collect funds raised at local businesses. The money collected will be used to purchase clothing and toys for children living at PSHH properties in Santa Barbara and Goleta.
Monetary donations are currently being accepted at select Santa Barbara area businesses and online at www.pshhc.org/giving.
“Buying presents for children during the holidays isn’t always a financial reality for many families in our community,” said John Fowler, President & CEO of Peoples’ Self-Help Housing. “We greatly appreciate any and all donations, and we know our residents do as well. The holiday season is a time for hope and joy, and having a present to unwrap not only lifts a child’s spirits, but their parents’ as well.”
The 2017 Holiday Toy Parade is proudly sponsored by Santa Barbara MTD, Community West Bank, Streator Pipe & Supply, Moen, Ayers Repairs, MarBorg Industries, Santa Barbara Police Department, Hotel Santa Barbara, Starbucks, Marshalls, LF Santa Barbara, Early California Antiques, Robert Andrew Fowler Landscape Architect and Carl Schneider CSA Architects. The festive parade will begin at 10 am on December 13 at Community West Bank, 1501 State Street, and then travel down State Street making stops at donation sites including Starbucks (1235 State St.), Marshalls (900 State St.), and Hotel Santa Barbara (533 State St.), before making its final stop at PSHH’s Milagro de Ladera Apartments (322 Ladera Street).
