Matt Turner and his brother Sat Kiret, founders of Santa Barbara’s Hustler’s for Humanity are doing something amazing and want to take their idea national. They sat with host Mark Sylvester for a wide-ranging conversation that went back to how they have become so motivated to serve and help the community. Their business is matching volunteers to opportunities to serve in the community. This can be assisting at events where the non-profit needs extra hands to unload chairs or provide assistance in parking at a fundraiser. They’ve done it all.
Our Mission: Impact the community. Teaming up to serve.
