Several Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office Custody and Wellpath employees delivered care packages to citizens in need this holiday season. On Friday, December 21, 2018, the group delivered 200 care packages containing food items, toiletries, blankets and socks to community members, many of whom are homeless. The care packages were delivered in the Santa Barbara, Goleta and Santa Maria areas.
The contents of the care packages were donated by Sheriff’s Custody staff, Wellpath staff and Aramark. Wellpath (formerly known as California Forensic Medical Group) is the contracted health services provider for the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office and Probation Department and they provide health and mental health services to incarcerated adults and juveniles in correctional facilities. Aramark is the contracted food services and commissary provider that services Sheriff’s Office custody facilities.
The Sheriff’s Office would like to thank all of those who continually help those in need. We would like to wish everyone a safe holiday season.
