Help Support Our Veterans at OC Rescue Mission’s 3rd Annual OC Veterans Day Dinner

Nearly 11,000 veterans in California are homeless. This is three times higher than states like Florida, which has the second highest population of homeless veterans across the U.S. These sobering statistics demonstrate the importance of supporting these unsung heroes.

OC Rescue Mission Fundraiser

By attending Orange County Rescue Mission’s 3rd Annual OC Veterans Day Dinner, you can help in the expansion of Tustin Veterans Outpost, an apartment complex that offers transitional housing for veterans along with veteran-specific services.

Hosted at the Santa Ana Elks Lodge, this is the second year in a row that this dinner is the only Veterans Day Dinner event in Orange County.
Each dinner ticket includes a three-course prix fixe menu, along with a program to commemorate and celebrate our veterans.

100% of the proceeds from the event will go towards the expansion of housing and services for homeless veterans at Tustin Veterans Outpost.

With this expansion, the Rescue Mission will increase its program for veterans by 150%, which will provide transitional housing for up to 71 veterans and family members.

Tustin Veterans Outpost program integrates many of the positive aspects of the military, such as the camaraderie, work ethic and disciplined lifestyle, empowering homeless veterans to draw from their military successes. Additionally, the program incorporates the resources and award-winning programs at Orange County Rescue Mission’s Village of Hope.

This year, Commander Ivan Bishop and Patrick Thomson will be honored for the Veteran of the Year award.
As Orange County Rescue Mission prepares to host this event, the safety of the public continues to be its number one priority. At the event, the Rescue Mission will be practicing all CDC, State and County guidelines as to COVID-19 safety.
