Three times a year, students, staff and local Church members work together to reach out to people living in downtown Santa Rosa, CA. The main target is Santa Rosa’s homeless population but, as the Open Table slogan says: “At the Open Table Everyone is Welcome.” Each event provides a number of different services to those present. A simple church service is held which includes song service, special music, a drama performance, and student speakers. Everyone is invited to a warm meal provided and served by Rio students and staff. In addition, clothing, eye glasses and toiletries are available to those in need of them and bicycle repair, resume writing assistance, and prayer stations offer additional assistance. At the end of the day there is a drawing for gift cards to local grocery stores.
