Kudos to Santa Barbara's careful movers for helping out in food drives and fundraisers such as this. I really admire Santa Barbara businesses and companies that really take the time to give back to the community in whatever way possible. And in Hazelwood Allied's case, they are generous enough to physically be there and assist in the transport of the donations.
