Dear <<First Name>>,
The Mission San Jose Chamber Giving Back
Our local Mission San Jose businesses have been challenged by COVID-19. Some have been able to open, while others remain closed. Whether open or closed, we strive to maintain the beauty of our neighborhood. So when the Old Mission is vandalized, IvyBoost is smacked by a car, and Mission Coffee's window is shattered, we respond. Pictured above are Gary Dorighi from the Old Mission, Tony Tang from IvyBoost, and Gael Stewart from Mission Coffee each receiving a small grant from Esther Gonzalez, President of the Mission San Jose Chamber of Commerce.

Featured Member - Little STEaMers
Little STEaMers preschool offers an environment designed to promote a sense of wonder, inquiry, and human connection. Children find meaning and joy through play. With the unstructured time and materials we offer, kids work on their own projects, solve problems together, and try things out over and over. It can be an exciting laboratory
for our youngsters to get things wrong a few times, sometimes many times, to get to the right answer. Director Cherryl Figone says, "I hope our young children will have more opportunities to get the answer wrong, and to have to find their own ways, as they grow older." Contact Cherryl a  510-770-4848 or
