Give a Little
• The I Have a Friend Mentor Program at Hospice of Santa Barbara, Inc. is in need of bilingual and bicultural volunteers. Mentor volunteers are adults who experienced the loss of a parent or sibling as a child, who are then trained and matched with children who have experienced a similar loss. Mentors help these children understand that their lives can be good again and that they can still grow up to be happy and successful people. If you would like to help, call Hospice of S.B. at 563-8820.
