Happy Holidays San Diego CPCU chapter members and supporters,
I hope you are well during this challenging year. Though we transitioned to virtual meetings this year, as is the tradition of CPCU, we still shared a proliferation of information and camaraderie despite our distance. We were even able to participate in All Industry Day with our friends throughout California and Hawaii- Mahalo! As disappointed as we are to forego our Good Works Luncheon, we will be donating the funds allocated for the luncheon to the charities listed below; each will receive $500. We are asking and encouraging you to make a donation if you’re able to do so; details about how your donation will be put to use are included below.
Most of their funds are being deployed to nonprofit organizations in San Diego helping to support low-income workers, families, and vulnerable communities most affected by the coronavirus crisis.
Donations help provide meals, housing, and supportive services for seniors living in poverty. They distribute approximately 7,000 meals per day.
San Diego Food Bank
They indicate for every $1 donated, 5 meals are provided. During the pandemic, they’ve offered a variety of different programs at several locations including food pantries (walk-up, drive-up), emergency food assistance, and senior citizen food assistance

As we plan for 2021, we remain flexible during these uncertain times. We are looking for new members to join the board. If you are interested, please reach out to our board members. Thank you for your continued support of CPCU. As we usher in a new year, we look forward to what 2021 will bring and the differences we will continue to make.
Wishing you a safe and healthy holiday season,
