• A quarter of all proceeds from the Second Saturday Arts Festival on Saturday, August 13, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. will benefit Jodi House—which is hosting the event at its downtown headquarters (625 Chapala St.). Jodi House is an organization aimed at helping brain injury patients recover through its supportive programs. Call 563-2882 for more info.

• Area nonprofit Peoples’ Self-Help Housing (PSHH) has determined 356 children (all in grades K-12) that the group serves are in need of school supplies for the upcoming academic year. Four Montecito-area churches have volunteered to assemble backpacks filled with supplies next week—and in conjunction with PSHH, the churches are asking for donations to help pay for the supplies. A $45 donation will stock one of these kids with age-appropriate supplies and gear for the next school year. Contact El Montecito Presbyterian Church at 969-5041 for info on how to contribute.
