Local Charities to Support this Holiday Season

Local Charities

Supporting and caring for local businesses and charities here in the valley is incredibly important to us. We also know that there are times when the holiday season gets very busy but the best part about this season…is giving.

If you are looking for some amazing local charities to support and get involved in check out some of our favorites!

Collaborates and partners with other organizations and agencies to leverage resources and fill gaps to ensure the effectiveness and long-term sustainability of the organization and to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness.

Paws & Hearts Animal Assisted Therapy

Enriches the lives of the frail and special-care cases that require the loving attention and affection that only a “four-legged” healer can provide.

Supporting the Young in our Valley:

Boys & Girls Club

For the Desert Lover:

Coachella Valley Mountains Conservancy

Strives to protect the scenic, wildlife, cultural, geologic, and recreational resources that make the Coachella Valley such a splendid place for people and all the other life forms with which we share this special place.

We hope this holiday season wonderful and full of love, community, and generosity.
