A new feel-good fundraiser launched by HELP of Carpinteria gives participants a chance to complete an act of kindness while feeding the coffers of the local nonprofit. During Carpinteria Kindness Month, Aug. 1 to 31, anyone interested in supporting HELP can order a gift of flowers from Ocean Breeze Nursery, chocolates from Robitaille’s Fine Candies or two 16-ounce beers from Island Brewing Company for a friend or loved one. Then HELP will deliver the goodies, along with a message, to the recipient. Delivery of one item costs $20, two cost $35, and three cost $45. All proceeds from the fundraiser benefit HELP, which is an all-volunteer organization that provides door-to-door transportation to non-driving residents. Orders can be made anytime online at HELPofCarpinteria.org, or Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the HELP office at 1069 Casitas Pass Road. Find out more at 684-0065.
