Local SMC and BIA Cares Team-Up to Feed the Homeless


Members of our local SMC & BIA Cares came together to prepare and deliver 450 meals to our local homeless population, under the guidance of the 11 Meals Mission. On a Saturday in 2020, Blake and Cooper Woodall (father and son) decided to make and deliver 11 meals to a group of homeless people, which began a passion for the mission of feeding those in need. Including the 450 meals delivered on August 5th, 11 Meals Mission has delivered 4,000 meals to people in need throughout San Diego. All food and delivery bags were purchased from cash donations given by the SMC & BIA Cares boards.

🎉 To All Enthusiasts of Innovation and Construction! 🏗️

Builders are like rock stars…everyone wants to meet them! We want to partner with them, but it’s so difficult to get a private audience. The Building Industry Show is the spot that allows you to meet and mingle with builders, as well as an opportunity to network, see what’s new in construction innovation, shop the exhibition floor, make new friends, and celebrate with old ones.

This isn't just an event — it's a jubilant celebration of milestones. Join us in commemorating the monumental 100th birthday of the Southern California BIA and the illustrious 85th birthday of the San Diego BIA. 🎂🎈
