Storyteller Children’s Center’s Annual Lunch with Love Fundraiser
Storyteller Children’s Center is gearing up for its 7th annual Lunchbox Luncheon on Tuesday. As a socially distanced creative pivot from an in-person event, Storyteller will be offering a delivered lunch to our patrons and donors. All participants will receive an amazing lunch catered by Duo and Mission Rose Pasta. Lunch packages will include three choices from the menu: a choice between two soups or fresh pasta and marinara, all served with freshly baked bread and a bottle of Grenache from Babcock winery. Lunches are $85 and serve a party of four. With each lunch purchase there is automatic entry into a raffle to win an original piece of artwork from Pedro De La Cruz. To see Mr. De La Cruz’s work you can visit his website at www.pedrodelacruz-artist.com. Lunches are being delivered on a day during April 13th – 16th between 11 – 1pm.
Each ticket holder will also receive a link to a short video update on all of our latest projects and programming at Storyteller.
We hope you will join us for this event to help support our mission to provide high-quality early childhood education for homeless and at-risk children in Santa Barbara County, as well as comprehensive support services for their families. We are currently accepting volunteers to help us deliver lunches to our donors and participants. For more information, please contact Adrienne De Guevara at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Storyteller is a therapeutic preschool that serves children and their families toward “Kindergarten Readiness.”
Storyteller serves Santa Barbara’s poorest families, those living below or close to the poverty guideline and who also meet the Federal definition of homeless. This segment of our community may have difficulty accessing and paying for quality preschool.

Storyteller changes the trajectory of lives for vulnerable children and their families. I am constantly in awe of the strength and determination of our children! Watching them transform their lives is a gift and is why I am passionate about this organization.
Help Support a Resilient Foundation for Young, Vulnerable Children
Storyteller Children’s Center’s operating budget serves the therapeutic and trauma-informed curriculums, building the foundation of resiliency that these students will tap into for their entire lives.
This year’s Transition House expansion allows Storyteller to support children as young as six weeks through kindergarten, creating a true continuum of care throughout the earliest years of a child’s life.
The added mental health services for this program cost $100,000 per year.
