Stuff the Bus - This is an annual donation drive for new school supplies which are collected and distributed throughout local school districts to students in need. Every summer, just before school starts, the community is invited to literally stuff a big yellow bus with school supplies. Volunteers will help collect school supplies outside of Cookie Crock in Cambria, Staples in SLO, Kmart in Atascadero and Walmart in Arroyo Grande and Paso Robles. Meathead Movers donates boxes to hold the supplies, Atascadero Unified, Coast Unified, Lucia Mar Unified, Paso Robles Joint Unified and San Luis Coastal Unified School Districts donate the use of the school busses and the drivers volunteer their time. 


Marre House - Featuring live music, delicious gourmet menu prepared by a local chef, wine provided by local wineries and the breathtaking views of the Coast from the historic Marre House! 

Care Packages for Christmas Day - For the past 20 years, the San Luis Obispo community has generously provided our County’s homeless with a wonderful home-cooked Christmas Day dinner, live entertainment and much needed winter clothing care packages. The latter contain brand new:  sleeping bags, hooded sweatshirts, winter jackets, socks, underwear and toiletries. Donate today!
