SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

The Santa Barbara Downtown Organization is looking for volunteers.

They need people to help tourists learn about all the fun things to do in the area.

The SBDO says 11 cruise ships will stop in Santa Barbara between Thursday and Nov. 12.

About 40,000 passengers and crew will get off the ships to eat and shop in town.

The SBDO says the No. 1 question tourists have is how to get around.

Volunteers are asked to donate at least one three-hour block of time.

To donate time, email the Santa Barbara Downtown Organization at volunteer@sbdo.org
