Santa Barbara Rescue Mission to Serve an Easter Feast

The Santa Barbara Rescue Mission is holding its annual Easter Feast on Thursday, April 17 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.

The celebration will occur in the Rescue Mission’s dining hall at 535 E. Yanonali St.

The Rescue Mission’s staff, along with the help of more than 20 volunteers, will serve meals to men, women and children.

Through charitable donations of food items and gifts from the Santa Barbara community, the Rescue Mission is prepared to serve up to 300 people in need.

“Over the last five years, the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission has seen a 16 percent increase in men needing nightly shelter and a 69 percent increase among women,” said Rolf Geyling, president of the Rescue Mission.

Volunteers are still needed to help serve. Please contact Lizzy MacRae at 805.966.1316 x107 or [email protected].

— Rebecca Weber is the director of communications 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!
