We’ve been humbled by comments from members of the nonprofit community and would like to share some with you. Thank you for embracing our concept and welcoming us into a community of caring.

“I think your Desert Charities News will be a great addition to our Desert. With all the many local wonderful charities and great work they do, there needs to be a vehicle to learn about them, their activities, and their mission statements. I wish you well!”
Mel Haber, President Angel View Crippled Children’s Foundation

“WOW! Steve and team, thank-you for taking on this worthy project—truly a monumental task which is greatly needed in the Palm Springs valley. Our many and varied local non-profits pride themselves on charitable endeavors and the desire to sincerely help those in need. Thank YOU for spreading the word and keeping track of the Coachella Valley’s business of charity. I wish you GREAT success.”
Judy Vossler

“Without charities in the Coachella Valley we would not enjoy so many benefits created by caring and giving people. Hospitals, boys and girls clubs, senior centers to name but a few, have enjoyed and will enjoy the benefits of your publication. Thanks for doing this for the community. Let’s be able to thank those who always think of others in their charitable giving.”
Jackie Autry

“With all the events, programs and activities in the Coachella Valley, it is difficult for non-profits and charities to publicize their many community events. This new publication looks like it will be a great vehicle to communicate the breadth of opportunities for a wide variety of Valley organizations.”
