Thanksgiving Banquet for the Homeless

Saturday, November 18, 2006


This event is one of the most exciting events we do all year!

200 volunteers from the Rock Church come together to personally invite and serve the homeless of San Diego to a hot and delicious traditional Thanksgiving meal prepared and hosted by the San Diego Rescue Mission, They not only receive a meal, but also a gift bag of much needed items such as foot powder, lotion, toothpaste, a toothbrush, and deodorant.

We have partnered with the Rescue Mission for this event for over 5 years and it never ceases to amaze us. We look forward to another blessed outreach as we serve those in need.

How You Can Get Involved


  1. Items being collected: foot powder, lotion, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and deodorant
