On February 28th, John Palminteri reported that a family and two tenants were burned out of their home at 1113 Carpinteria St. We asked our community to help them in this time of need. The Red Cross asked that the house be secured with plywood, and requested bedding and food to help the family and newly homeless tenants.
So we put out the call to our neighborhood. And the response was overwhelming! The phone started ringing, and people stepped up all over this community. Within 2 hours, we had bed linens from the Fess Parker in hand, $50 gift cards from the Shop Cafe and Tri County Produce, Santa Barbara Plumbing offered the plywood, and Giffin and Crane was hustling to the house to help board it up and protect the contents. Jack’s Bistro wanted to send bagels over, and Sal’s Pizza, El Bajio and McDonald’s offered to feed the family dinner. Residential neighbors offered clothes, pots, and all kinds of help. Another neighbor dropped off a $50 gift card from Trader Joe’s.
The Red Cross, dispatched to help the family, was stunned. They said they wanted to live in this neighborhood! Thank you so much to this community for stepping up to help a neighbor in need!
