Galilee Center Angels Dinner 2019

Angel's Dinner

You’re All Angels!

Our Heartfelt Thanks for Sharing Your Blessings

Thanks to you and the many other generous individuals and companies, the Angels Dinner helped to extend our services to the more than 22,000 needy children and 4,700 seniors we assist each year.

Your Gifts Made The Difference

Trips to Panama and Hawaii were among many special live and silent auction items that helped raise critical funds. Co-founders Gloria Gomez & Claudia Castorena also raised thousands by donating their time and talents to personally cater a private event.

There’s Beauty in Giving

Whether through time, talents or resources, we sincerely thank all those who contributed to the success of our Angels Dinner. We also extend a special thank you to the invaluable volunteers and entertainers!

Galilee Center Celebrates Epiphany Day with New Shoes and Blankets for Needy Children

Epiphany Day at Galilee Center Epiphany Day at Galilee Center

Mecca, CA – (January 3, 2019) – Timing could not be better during the desert’s cold winter for warming hearts and helping children with new shoes, socks and blankets. Galilee Center will be distributing these much-needed items beginning at 10 a.m. this Sunday, January 6, 2019, from its multi-purpose facility in Mecca.

Celebrating its 8th year, Galilee Center’s Epiphany Day is expected to serve an estimated 1,000 children of the East Coachella Valley that range in age from infants to 14-years-old. Children will receive a pair of new shoes and socks, while those younger will take home a soft blanket generously donated by Needles & Pins and Blankets from the Heart at Sacred Heart Church.

The East Coachella Valley nonprofit, recognized for its wide-ranging services to many of the area’s overlooked, relies largely on the generosity of the public to sustain its ability to provide clothing, food and shelter to all ages from its service-focused building in Mecca.

Galilee Center Co-Founder Gloria Gomez explains, “Particularly with winter temperatures unusually cold, these vitally needed items will help children stay warm. It is extremely gratifying to have the ability to make a difference in so many lives thanks to the blessings that our donors and volunteers share.”
