4th of July Carnival

We are holding our tenth annual 4th of July Carnival and barbecue dinner for homeless guests on Tuesday, July 4 from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m.  The carnival will take place in our converted parking lot located at 535 East Yanonali Street.  It is one of the summer’s highlights and we are preparing to serve approximately 300 homeless men, women and children.

Through the efforts of our very own Women’s Auxiliary, there will be music to entertain guests, raffle prizes to win, and a carnival of games such as a pie throwing contest!  The men and women in the Mission’s 12-month Residential Recovery Program will also be present to lend a helping hand and celebrate with the guests in patriotic style.

Rolf Geyling, our president, said, “Life on the streets is never easy.  That is why the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission works so hard to create a warm, welcoming, homelike atmosphere—especially during the holidays.”
