Donation Drop Offs:


When you donate food to the Mission, you are helping us serve 350,000 meals a year to those in need. As part of our community outreach the Mission serves three daily meals to our residents, two daily public meals, and distributes food boxes to help sustain families and those in need in our community.

Drop off your much needed food donations seven days a week at the Donation Dock, located at 47470 Van Buren St. in Indio, open 8am – 4pm, and after hours drop off at the security office.

For large donations, please call 760.347.3512 Ext.300 to arrange for a pickup time.
