San Diegans Can Drop off Donations at any of the 35 Mission Fed Branches Across the County 

La Maestra Community Health Centers has teamed up with Mission Fed Credit Union on its annual Toy and Gift Drive to provide holiday joy for patients in need. Through December 13th, San Diegans can drop off toys and gifts at any Mission Fed branch. The collections boxes will be available at all 35 branches across San Diego County and two at its corporate headquarters, located at 10325 Meanley Drive, San Diego, CA 92131. To find a Mission Fed branch location, please visit www.missionfed.com/branches.  

La Maestra is seeking unwrapped toys, books and gifts for kids ages 0 – 18. Items will be distributed to local patients in need at La Maestra’s El Cajon and City Heights locations.   

Now more than ever, donations are needed to ensure that clients and patients from low-income, underserved communities will have at least one gift this holiday season. Every year, La Maestra employees, volunteers, and sponsors come together to provide heartfelt donations such as clothing, toys, and nutritious foods to help brighten the holidays. With support from the community, La Maestra will be able to continue to provide small gifts and needed household items to those who may not otherwise be able to afford gifts for their children.  

“We are honored to have Mission Fed’s support as well as our many other sponsors including, Molina Healthcare, Blue Shield of California Promise Health Plan, Community Health Group, Health Net, LLC, Aetna, TempDev, Linas Naujokaitis, OSIS, Scripps Mercy, United Healthcare, AT&T and Verizon as we roll out our Annual Gift and Toy Drive,” said Zara Marselian, PhD, FACHE, President and Chief Executive Officer of La Maestra Community Health Centers. “Our community has always been so positive in its response to assisting patients. This year, with the help of all of our sponsors we anticipate providing holiday joy to even more clients.”  

At Mission Fed, giving back to the community is part of its DNA and double-bottom line birthright. The organization is here to enhance and improve the lives of all San Diegans, and help build a stronger, kinder San Diego by giving back.
