Donations flood into Launch Good...

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - For a decade the Islamic Society of Santa Barbara has called a second floor location at 650 Ward Drive home, but on Sunday night smoke from a nearby fire damaged the center.

The center is used for prayers five times a day.

Members have not been allowed back in to salvage items.

Aida Aminzai, the co-founder of The Blessed Tree Foundation and the wife of Imam Yama Niazi, said donations are flooding in thanks to a Launch Good website.
