Santa Barbara Rescue Mission to Serve Christmas Feast

The Santa Barbara Rescue Mission will hold its annual Christmas Feast from noon to 2 p.m. Friday, Dec. 21 at 535 E. Yanonali St.

The mission’s staff and a team of volunteers will serve meals to men, women and children in need.

Gift bags will be distributed to everyone who comes. Without this event, many would not have any Christmas presents this year.

Tables will be set up in the parking lot with a selection of gift items so guests will be able to take what they need most.

“The holidays can be a joyful time, but a lonely time for those that are struggling with poverty, homelessness and addiction,” said Rolf Geyling, president of the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission. “We offer hope and a new beginning, so many of the graduates of our 12-month residential recovery program started here with a simple holiday meal.”

— 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!
