Over 20,000 San Diego school children will go entire weekends not knowing if there will be enough food to eat.
These are not just kids from rural areas or low income neighborhoods. Nor are they kids of any particular race or ethnicity. You won't see their picture hanging on anyone's refrigerator door or their sad faces on late night television commercials with paid celebrity spokespersons pleading their cause. These are children from right here in our own communities, from all walks of life, who all have one thing in common... they're hungry.
Chamber Partners with MainStreet Oceanside and Visit Oceanside for Greater Oceanside Coverage on Google maps
This summer, the Oceanside Chamber, along with MainStreet Oceanside and Visit Oceanside are taking on the task of helping Google provide coverage of local gems that are not accessible through Google's Street View program. The Oceanside team is utilizing the Google Trekker program to highlight many of Oceanside's "off-street" features such as the beach, pier, bike paths, Pier View Way Undercrossing, Artist Alley Pedestrian Promenade and the Oceanside Harbor.
On July 12th, the Oceanside Chamber held its annual Awards & Recognition Luncheon to honor over 100 local businesses for their support of the Chamber and community. Dozens of members were recognized for their Chamber membership anniversaries of 5, 10, 15... all the way up to 65 years of membership, celebrated by Orco Block & Hardscape. The Chamber also recognized the excellence of our local business community with the following awards: Small Business of the Year, Education Partner of the Year, Non-Profit of the Year, Green Business of the Year, Citizen of the Year and Elected Official of the Year.
