This is the season of giving and love and in that spirit we have three suggestions of areas where your help is needed.
First: At our last meeting, we heard from San Diego’s Jean Dittmyer, who’s active in the national movement to help win the special Georgia election for Democrats. It’s amazing to contemplate, but we could turn the White House and both houses of Congress Blue – with your help. Find out what you can do here
Democrats are doing phone-banking today at noon and every Sunday until the election. Grab a cup of coffee, and/or a mimosa, and join the fun!
Secondly, we’re looking for donations to help our neighbors. We’re supporting the La Mesa United Methodist Church, which sponsors Fresh Start Saturday, a monthly breakfast for the homeless. Money will be used for future food purchases and hygiene supplies. They also need donations of clothing, such as new socks and underwear, new and used coats, sweaters, and men’s belts. Pickup for donations can be arranged. For more information call board member Merrill Perry @ 619-820-2199. Or just donate here
And thirdly, now is a good time to renew your membership, join the club, or donate if you’ve got a couple of bucks to spare. Your membership and contributions go to programming and activities in support of local Democrats and progressive causes. Join, renew, or donate here
And mark your calendars – our next meeting is Wednesday, Jan. 6, 6:30 pm for unstructured social conversation, programming starts at 7 pm. Zoom URL to come soon.
That’s it for today. We’ll have the video from our most recent meeting, including Jean’s talk and musical and spoken word entertainment, soon.
