October 8, 2017 (La Mesa) - The La Mesa Chamber believes that being a good community leader includes assisting those in need. Each year we assist La Mesa homebound seniors and this year we shall assist 24 wonderful seniors - 20 women and 4 men. We collect items to make their holidays bright and meaningful.

We suggest canned soups, canned vegetables, lotions, soaps, socks, breakfast cereals, tissues, beans, rice, canned vegetables pens, pads of paper, bottles of liquid hand soap, lotions, gift cards in any denomination from local stores, slipper socks or any items you believe will put a smile on their faces.

The deadline to receive the gifts for our seniors is Thursday, November 30th. Deliver them to the Chamber office at 8080 La Mesa Blvd., Suite 212 or next door to Fran Smith in Suite 214 Monday - Friday from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. If you need to coordinate our picking up items, contact Mary England 619- 251-7730.

We ask that if you wish to donate items from your pantry, please check the expiration date to make sure the date on those items has not expired.
