Special Events

Food Fight

Food Fight is a campaign that runs during the month of March to raise funds and canned foods to provide meals and additional services to our guests.  It is open to businesses and school sites within our region.  Cash boxes and barrels are available to collect donations throughout this campaign.  To sign up your organization please contact Sabrina Charlson at scharlson@gnrm.org.

Resurrection Celebration

On Good Friday we gather together and host two traditional Easter meals for our guests.  These meals are served to our guests by community members in a sit down service.  Live music is offered by local artists during the meals.  Volunteers are needed for both services as well as donations of specific food items to provide the meals.  To volunteer for this event, please contact Janet Shields at 530-242-5920 or email jshields@gnrm.org.

Night to the Rescue

Night to the Rescue is an important part of bringing hope to the weary and shelter from the storm.  In early May community members come out with family and friends to SLEEP OUT and STAND UP for the homeless.  The event provides a meaningful experience – combined with a good dose of fun – to raise support and awareness about the issue of homelessness. This event is an awareness and fundraising event for our homeless brothers and sisters on the streets. Homeless individuals will not actually attend Night to the Rescue.  Dollars raised will help feed, clothe, and shelter homeless men, women, and children at the Good News Rescue Mission. Night to the Rescue participants will be provided the tools needed to raise these dollars to make a difference!  Meals are provided. To get information regarding team or individual registration or serving on our event committee, please contact Sabrina Charlson, Event Coordinator at 530-242-5920 or email scharlson@gnrm.org.

New Life Graduation

In May, we gather to celebrate our students in the New Life Recovery Program who have completed their program.   This event is open to the public and there is no charge to attend.

Harvest of Hope

This fundraising banquet is hosted annually in the fall.   This is an invitation only event. Last year we welcomed guest speaker Bill Rieser.

Stay tuned to hear who this year’s speaker will be.
