The businesses damaged in La Mesa on May 30th and May 31st have received additional support from several benefactors. These concerned businesses and organizations wish to assist in the rebuilding of the damaged La Mesa businesses, as well as their lives. These donations have been made directly to the La Mesa Chamber of Commerce with the request that the Chamber disburse the funds to the damaged businesses. These generous donations have required the need for the Chamber to create a fund, the La Mesa Business Assistance Fund.
Randall Lamb Associates, a business that was destroyed by the fires on May 30th made a generous contribution of $5,000. Receiving this unselfish contribution from Randall Lamb Associates to help the damaged businesses, speaks volumes for the character and compassion of the entire Randall Lamb Associates leadership team. Randall Lamb Associates has been offering innovative, functional and sustainable engineering services for over 42 years. A donation from The Phair Company is also greatly appreciated in the amount of $1,000. The Phair Company is currently building the newest homes in La Mesa called, La Mesa Summit Estates, a gated and fenced community with ocean view lots. Jeff Phair recently offered a “walkabout” allowing potential La Mesa residents to view the available pre-construction lots. The Lions Club of La Mesa is a constant supporter of our community and made a contribution of $2,000 to also assist the impacted La Mesa businesses. The Lions Club is known for charitable projects that make an impact on our community and lives. Just last week, they donated 840 bottles of water and sports drinks to the La Mesa Police Department. The entire community is quite aware of their annual Italian Dinner fundraiser, an evening where locals gather and celebrate and support this active non-profit organization.
The La Mesa Chamber of Commerce is grateful for these donations and being a part of our community, where neighbors truly help neighbors.
