Santa Barbara Rescue Mission to Serve Thanksgiving Feast to Homeless

The Santa Barbara Rescue Mission will hold its annual Thanksgiving Feast from noon to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 21.

The Rescue Mission and a team of volunteers will be prepared to serve more than 300 meals to community members in need. This festive celebration will be held in the Mission’s dining hall located at 535 E. Yanonali St.

“The homeless, hurting and hungry in our community feel forgotten –– especially during the holidays,” said Rolf Geyling, president of the Rescue Mission. “In the last year, we have seen a 14 percent increase in need for our emergency services to the homeless.”

— Rebecca Weber is director of communications and constituent relations for the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
