Direct Relief Fundraiser

Monetary donations to support Ukraine can be made to Direct Relief using our CBB fundraising page.

The husband of a local Santa Barbara family created this information for CBB and Mitzvah Day! He is also a member of the Lviv Medical Volunteers and works directly with the Army on their needs. Learn more about how your contribution goes directly to the front lines to help Ukraine!


We are also accepting warm, gently used, winter supplies for Santa Barbara people facing houselessness. Items we’re looking for include warm jackets, blankets, sweaters, scarves, gloves, and new cold weather socks.

Bring your dry-cleaning bags and other single-use plastics to Mitzvah Day. ECO Team will get them to Trex, which turns them into outdoor decking.

These items can be placed in the marked bins.

ECO Team – A project of Tikkun Olam, ECO Team encourages individuals to make small changes that can help to slow climate change and heal the planet. Collectively, these little things can have a large impact. Team members educate themselves on environmental matters through member research and reporting, outside speakers, and field trips. ECO Team meets on the first Tuesday of each month at a centrally located private home.

Ubumwe School – The Ubumwe Preschool Project began in the Fall of 2010. Our goal was to build a preschool for the children of Gisenyi, Rwanda, and to raise awareness at CBB about the ongoing effects of the Rwandan genocide that took place in 1994. We raised funds to build a sister preschool and elementary school, but continued help is needed to support the school and the teachers with scholarships and supplies.
