Welcome to Bayside
With the holiday season upon us and in the spirit of giving, I would like to invite you to champion the Bayside cause, get others involved and invest in the work that we do to brighten the lives of the less fortunate. Bayside is a center for community building. It creates opportunities for people to come together to enhance their quality of life. When a person walks through the doors of the community center they not only receive help with their particular needs; they also enter a place where they can meet others, build social networks and reweave the fabric of relationships in their communities so that they may address concerns and pursue interests together.
Starting Monday, December 9th, for 12 days, you will receive a message with a personal story from someone whose life has been impacted by Bayside's work. These stories will give you an opportunity to have a closer look at the personal experiences of real people. Find out, for example, how Andrea found a job, how senior citizen Eustolia now embraces technology and how 15 year old Charlotte found confidence through dance.
From December 9th through December 20th you will have the opportunity to contribute to make an impact on the lives of those who we serve. Every gift matters. Last year we received more than $20,000 in donations during our December online campaign. Help us do it again this year!
We've simplified the donation procedure, allowing supporters to donate on line through our new FirstGiving page.
- Send a check to Bayside Community Center 2202 Comstock Street San Diego, CA 92111 (Memo note:12 days of giving campaign)

Our 12 days of giving campaign is an opportunity for you to contribute to Bayside so that we may have a greater impact during the holiday season. We are looking forward to sharing our 2013 stories with you during these 12 days.
My team and I thank you for your support and wish you a very Happy Holiday Season!
Jorge Riquelme, Executive Director
