Holiday Resources

Posted on

Dear Mission Families,

If you, a family member or friend are in need of holiday meals, in addition to family resources such as on-going food support, bill & rental assistance, and more, simply dial 211 on your phone, and you will be connected to a help agent in your language who can assist you. All you need to do is provide your zip code.

We also provided a list below on agencies who can also assist you with these help services.

The Mission High Family Center will also send out courtesy holiday program information, such as winter coats and toy drive information by text and email during the break!

Thank you and have a lovely & safe holiday!
