The La Mesa Chamber of Commerce has created a partnership with Barnes & Noble at Grossmont Center to invite the public to purchase a book that will be donated to the Chamber’s annual “La Mesa Military Families Holiday Project.”

The books may be purchase at Barnes & Noble at Grossmont Center beginning on Sept. 29 and can be purchased through Oct. 27.

The local Military Families Holiday Project allows the La Mesa Chamber of Commerce to gather new toys, diapers and other items for military families that are living in the two military housing locations in La Mesa. Many of them have family members deployed during the holidays and this project allows the Chamber and the public to make the holiday season a little brighter for these military personnel that sacrifice for our country.

This event is being called “Stuff the Jeep.”

There will be a Jeep in Grossmont Center beginning Oct. 22 and on Saturday, Oct. 27 at 3:30 p.m. all of the books that have been donated will be brought out to the Jeep and “stuffed” in the Jeep for this worthy cause.

It will be an afternoon of celebration, as these books are “officially” stuffed in the Jeep and handed off to the La Mesa Chamber to be included in the Chamber’s annual military children and families holiday enhancement project.

How can the public participate?

Visit Barnes & Noble in Grossmont Center and remember at “check out” to pick a book from the stack of books available to donate to the military families.

All those that donate a book will be given a raffle ticket. Raffles will be held for prizes on Saturday, Oct. 27 from noon to 4 p.m.

You could be a lucky winner!

Also, in Barnes & Noble between the hours of 12 noon and 4 p.m. there will be lots of children’s activities such as – craft activities, special story time and more!

Bring your children to this great fun-filled day at Grossmont Center and be part of this family event!

Don’t just take part in the activities, but walk around the Center, grab a bite to eat at many of the local restaurants, do a little shopping and come back at 3:30 p.m. and watch the books being “stuffed” into the Jeep!

The Jeep is on loan from La Mesa’s own, Carl Burger Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM World. We are grateful for their support in making this gift-giving event so unique and exciting.

The day’s raffle prizes are being donated by: Barnes & Noble, Carl Burger Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM World, Grossmont Center and the La Mesa Chamber of Commerce. Remember, you can shop at Barnes & Noble and donate a book beginning on Sept. 29 through Oct. 27.
