Cabazon Band of Mission Indians

Checks will be distributed this week to three Coachella Valley charities, committed to feeding the hungry. The much-needed funding comes from the inaugural Cabazon Band of Mission Indians’ Drive Against Hunger Charity Golf Tournament played in April. The tribe donated Eagle Falls Golf Course for the event, which brought in $20,000 for the charities.

All the money raised will be given to Martha’s Village and Kitchen, Well in the Desert and FIND Food Bank. The funds will be used to supplement their food distribution programs.

Currently Martha’s Village and Kitchen serves 225,000 meals a year, three meals a day to residents and one meal to the public. Well in the Desert serves nearly 45,000 meals, many to seniors and children and FIND Food Bank distributes food through partnering agencies to 80,000 individuals monthly.

The community-wide fundraising event was spearheaded by a group of volunteers from Sun City, Shadow Hills who then asked the Cabazon Band to help make the event a reality. Plans are already underway for next year’s golf tournament fundraiser, where volunteers hope to double what they raised this year, for local charities.
