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 email@example.com.
Director of Development: Adrienne De Guevara,
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.

The Key Component is Love
We can’t change the world, but we can impact our little corner. Our teachers, our leadership team, and our Board are positively impacting children and their families’ lives every day.
A Lasting Impact on Children and Families
If the last year has shown us anything, it is that we need to lean on each other for support and strength when challenges arise. At Storyteller, teachers and staff have seen first-hand the increased levels of stress and trauma their families are experiencing as a result of the pandemic. From grieving the loss of loved ones to trying to obtain stable housing or employment, the families of Storyteller have experienced more than many of us could imagine. In response to this growing need for support and resources, Storyteller recently introduced a Family Advocacy Program to focus directly on the needs of the parents and guardians. The program provides early intervention for families before challenges become too complex or debilitating to overcome. With the support of community donors, this pilot program will become a permanent part of Storyteller’s service offering and have a lasting impact for years to come.
