The Santa Barbara Rescue Mission is holding its eighth annual 4th of July Carnival for their homeless guests on Saturday, July 4 from 1 to 3:30 p.m.

The celebration will occur in the Rescue Mission’s parking lot located at 535 E. Yanonali St.

The Mission is preparing to serve a barbecue dinner to feed approximately 300 homeless men, women and children.

Through the efforts of the Women’s Auxiliary there will be music to entertain guests, a carnival of games and raffle prizes provided. The men and women in the Mission’s 12-month Residential Recovery Program will also be present to lend a helping hand.

Rolf Geyling, president of the Rescue Mission, stated, “Often forgotten during the holidays, our neighbors in need know they are loved at Santa Barbara Rescue Mission!”

The Santa Barbara Rescue Mission is the only local agency providing summer overnight shelter to the homeless, along with other emergency services and life-changing recovery programs.

— Rebecca Weber is the communications director 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!
