Connections by Mission Fed Newsletter
The Heart of Mission Fed
At the very heart of our long-standing history of supporting and investing in San Diego communities, are the people, relationships, and our connection to the region. The Connections by Mission Fed newsletter captures some of our positive impact in the communities where we live, work, and serve. We’re grateful for our members who believe in our mission and support our commitment to San Diego!
Financial Literacy Superheroes Save the Day!
In partnership with the San Diego Council on Literacy and additional partners and contributing sponsors, Mission Fed is honored to have been a part of the first ever Financial Literacy Superheroes Competition! The monthlong competition promoted good money management habits among young people and families in the San Diego region.
Youth and their parents/guardians were invited to compete for awards and cash prizes with the aim of creating outstanding and original art pieces that teach financial literacy concepts. Congratulations to the award winners celebrated at the awards ceremony held at The Comic-Con Museum, Balboa Park.
A Celebration of Latino Culture
Mission Fed is proud to have served as a sponsor of the 29th annual San Diego Latino Film Festival, an 11-day celebration of Latino cinema, arts, and culture. The event ran March 10 - 20 and featured in-person movies at Westfield Mission Valley AMC Theatre as well as online virtual screenings.
As one of the largest and well-respected Latino film festivals in the world, the San Diego Latino Film Festival is organized by the Media Arts Center San Diego, a local nonprofit that endorses the inclusion of underrepresented communities in the media arts field and promotes community access to and use of media technology.
Advancing the Welfare of Animals and People
Mission Fed joined the North County community as a sponsor of February’s San Diego Humane Society’s North County Walk for Animals and support their commitment to creating a more humane San Diego for animals and the people who love them. Together, we can provide animals with shelter and lifesaving medical care, help families adopt new pets, rescue animals from cruelty and neglect, and so much more. Mark your calendars for the upcoming Walk for Animals-San Diego in May to help give pets the second chance they deserve. Learn more at SDHumane.org.
100,000 Meals for the North County Community
Working together with the Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) of San Francisco, Mission Fed presented $20,000 to the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank, earmarked for the North County Food Bank. The total included a $10,000 Mission Fed end-of-year donation plus $10,000 in a matching grant from FHLB, providing 100,000 meals for those in North County suffering from food insecurity. The San Diego Food Bank and its North County Food Bank chapter comprise the largest hunger-relief organization in San Diego County. Consider donating today at SDFoodBank.org.
A Financially Secure Future
Mission Fed volunteers had the opportunity to guide Logan Memorial Middle School students through adult life simulations at Junior Achievement (JA) of San Diego County’s Mission Fed JA Finance Park. Students learned to budget, save, and spend for themselves and their virtual families. We’re honored to join the many community volunteers who positively impact young people’s perceptions about the importance of education and provide them with hands-on tools and skills to plan for a financially secure future.
Healthcare Gratitude Visits
Mission Fed’s gratitude visits provided an opportunity to express our appreciation for Poway Unified School District (PUSD) registered nurses and the Health Services Team at Escondido Union School District (EUSD). To ensure student and staff safety, their teams have been at the front line to enable classes to be held in-person and stepped up for new duties including COVID testing, record keeping, temperature taking and much more. Mission Fed recognizes these heroes at PUSD and EUSD and appreciates their dedication to their students’ wellness.
