City Staff Pitching In For Hurricane Relief

Public Invited to Join Effort

Post Date:09/13/2017 3:33 PM

 Hurricane Harvey

The devastation wrought by recent hurricanes in Texas, Puerto Rico, and the Southeastern United States have affected all who have witnessed the heartbreaking impacts on life and property.

Staff members at the City of Palm Desert were also deeply moved by the human toll inflicted by these powerful natural disasters and wanted to help. Staff has organized internal fundraisers that generated more than $500 in donations to One Appeal America for hurricane relief.

Palm Desert has repeatedly proved its generosity through the years when natural or manmade disasters took a toll on fellow communities near or far. The hurricanes and the recent earthquake in Mexico present opportunities for our community to once again demonstrate its large and generous heart.

If you would like to donate to hurricane or disaster relief, the following organizations are legitimate nonprofits that will allow peace of mind when it comes to your contribution:  

One America Appeal - www.oneamericaappeal.org

The American Red Cross - www.redcross.org

Americares Foundation - www.americares.org
