Give a Little

• This Saturday, April 4, hundreds of Santa Barbarans will join the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Southern California Chapter for Walk MS Santa Barbara at Leadbetter Beach. Any dollar amount, small or large, that participants can raise from pledges will be used for education, advocacy, research, and programs that enhance the quality of life for people with multiple sclerosis in the S.B. area. Walk times vary; call 682-8783 for more info.

• Dobie Little Paws Rescue Shelter-a nonprofit, no-kill shelter that currently houses more than 150 homeless dogs-is in need of your new or used blankets to keep these cuddly canines warm as they wait for their new “forever” homes in the organization’s Goleta facilities. Any clean blanket you’d like to donate to the dogs can be dropped off at 879 South Kellogg Avenue-or, you can call the organization at 689-1771 and a representative from the shelter will come to pick up the donation.
