Desert Rec Programs Getting Big $$ Boost; $25K Grant Will Support East Valley Activities

Five senior programs in the east valley will continue to operate at full capacity, thanks to a $25,000 grant from the H.N. and Frances C. Berger Foundation. 

The grant goes to the Desert Recreation Foundation, which can now continue the programs at the community centers in Mecca, North Shore, Indio Hills, Thermal and Thousand Palms.

 Operating for more than 70 years, Desert Recreation District currently manages and maintains more than 30 parks and recreation facilities in the area. Its fundraising arm, Desert Recreation Foundation, garners support to purchase, develop, enhance, preserve, promote and expand many of the Coachella Valley’s recreational activities, programs, parks, properties and facilities that enrich and preserve the quality of life for residents.
