Contributions can be made by mail or in person. Mission Community Bank has branches in San Luis Obispo (581 Higuera Street), Paso Robles (1226 Park Street), Arroyo Grande (154 West Branch Street) and Santa Maria (1670 South Broadway). BCA has a collection center at its offices, 711 Tank Farm Road, Suite 210 in SLO. The United Way can also accept on-site cash and credit card contributions in person at 1288 Morro St. in downtown SLO, or by phone to 541-1234.
