The Santa Barbara Rescue Mission is holding its annual Easter Feast from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 24, 2016. The celebration will occur in the Rescue Mission’s decorated dining hall located at 535 East Yanonali Street.

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

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

Rolf Geyling, president of the Rescue Mission, said, “Many of those who will come through our doors for food, help and hope this Easter season have nowhere else to go and no one who cares about them. 

“We are the only emergency shelter open to all, winter and summer, 365 days a year. We’re seeing more men and women coming to us in desperate need of a meal, to hear about Christ’s redemption and find real hope for recovery,” Geyling said.

Rebecca Weber is the director of communications and constituent relations at 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!
