S.B. Botanic Garden Seeks Donations to Help Cover Costs of Fire Damage; Girls Inc. of S.B. to Hold Fundraiser Sale

• In these difficult economic times, the S.B. Botanic Garden (1212 Mission Canyon Rd.) was forced to layoff 10 employees. Now, with the damage sustained during the Jesusita Fire, the garden is in the midst of a devastating situation-as the financial loss is likely to be somewhere in the millions-and donations are needed more than ever. If you can help, call 682-4726 x132 for more info.

• Girls Inc. of S.B. will be holding its annual Spring Treasure and Rummage Sale on Saturday, May 30, to raise funds for the unique self-esteem building programs it offers to young girls in our area. From now until May 26, the organization is accepting donations of items to be sold at the sale, including books, clothing, dishware, toys, furniture, small appliances, and more. The organization also is seeking volunteers to help with pricing, set-up, and sales on the day of the event. Call 967-0319 for more info.
