The Santa Barbara Rescue Mission is accepting turkeys, canned food and monetary donations in preparation for its annual Thanksgiving Feast, which will be held from 12–​2 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 25, 2015. 

The Mission’s staff and a team of volunteers plan to serve over 300 meals to community members in need. This festive celebration will be held in the Mission’s dining hall located at 535 E. Yanonali Street. 

The Thanksgiving dinner will include turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, pie and all the trimmings. 

Approximately 800 turkeys are needed for all of the meals that will be served throughout the holiday season.   

President Rolf Geyling said, “Every year, Thanksgiving is one of the hardest, most painful times of the year to be desperate, alone and unwelcome. This is why Santa Barbara Rescue Mission is here, with our doors and arms open to help.” 

Donations may be dropped off Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the Yanonali Street office.

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!
