Nov 21, 2015Utilize tools such as www.brightscope.com to verify the quality, including cost, of your plan. If your plan is rated poorly, consider only saving up to the amount of your 401(k) contribution that your company matches.

Volunteering within our community is an important facet of our mission.
Feeding America San Diego is committed to solving hunger in our community and informing the public on the issues of food insecurity, nutrition, and poverty. We fight hunger locally by working hand-in-hand with partner agencies, local school districts, corporate partners and a network of volunteers to serve 56,000 children, families and seniors in need each week.
