CARPINTERIA. Calif. - There are many surprises these days in Carpinteria as part of a fundraiser.
The deliveries are putting funds in the budget for HELP of Carpinteria. The non-profit is mainly funded through grants and donations.
The service provides rides for residents without a vehicle and who need to make it to important appointments, such as the grocery store, senior lunch programs, banks and the doctor's office. The all volunteer organization has 75 volunteers and provides thousands of rides annually.
On Wednesdays and Fridays in August there is an extra vehicle that is being used to drop off gifts, pre ordered as part of Kindness month.
They are a bouquet of flowers from Ocean Breeze, a half pound of chocolates from Robatailles, and two 16 ounce beer certificates from Island Brewing.
One is $20. two are $35. and all three to the same person will be $45.
The delivery has to be in the 93013 zip code zone but the order can come in from anywhere in the world.
If you would like to make an order you can call HELP of Carpinteria at 805 684 0065.
