Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates & Resources Email Blasts

The La Mesa Chamber is continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation in order to provide our business community with the latest information and resources.

La Mesa Business Disaster Recovery

To our Members and Friends:

Last night senseless crimes were committed in our city. Local businesses that were excited about re-opening, are now sweeping up broken glass and trying to clean up from the rioting and looting. We are grateful to our neighbor, the San Diego East County Chamber who has created a fund through their non-profit foundation, the East County Chamber of Commerce Foundation to collect donations to assist local La Mesa businesses.

If you are able to donate to this fund, we encourage you to do so, your donation is 100% tax deductible.

The protesters came into our city and caused physical destruction, but they can NEVER destroy our spirit!  
 
Take care of yourselves and your families,
 
Mary

LMCC Members Open for Business

In these challenging times with so many making drastic changes in their lives, we have members that are open to offer you a bite to eat – take out or curbside pick up – to take the pressure out of cooking. We encourage you to support these businesses, as the mandate to close their restaurants to dining-in guests has made a definite impact on their financial security and the lives of their employees. We also encourage you to purchase gift cards from our local businesses, they are a great way to continue the cash flow and a GREAT way to support our local businesses – use them now or later!

Take Our COVID-19 Business Survey

We encourage our chamber members to take the COVID-19 survey below. We’d love to hear from you! We plan to share all of your responses when the survey is completed. Stay healthy and take care of each other! We may be apart – but we are always here for you!
