Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday—seasonal cooking of largely (subliminally) indigenous foods, gathering friends and family, and reflecting on growth and what gives us joy.

Especially in an extreme year like 2020 with immense collective losses, taking a beat to celebrate is powerful. Gratitude gives us hope and helps us to keep going.

Amidst chaos, we’re grateful for:

And last but not least, we are deeply grateful that you are part of our community.

Stay well and take care of each other,

We are proud to share that Rise Up Industries—one of the nonprofit organizations that received funding through the San Diego County COVID-19 Small Business & Nonprofit Loan Program—won Nonprofit of the Year for 2020 in California District 71! They were nominated by Assemblymember Randy Voepel and the award was granted by the California Association of Nonprofits. This award is a vote of confidence for its Reentry Program, and affirmation that their supporters’ investment in Rise Up Industries is well stewarded. You can also read more about Rise Up Industries in a recent article from The San Diego Union-Tribune here.
