Lend us your insight into raising the quality of the event and encouraging key community stakeholders to attending our events.

Special Events

Your school, church, civic group or organization can host Special Events to benefit shelter guests and program members. We have had special bbq picnics, ladies tea party, ice cream social, outdoor choir performance with an outdoor meal, special outings to the Oakland Zoo and Oakland A’s baseball games. The only limit is your imagination and determination to make a lasting impact on those staying at the Rescue Mission.
