United in Health

Volunteer

Starting January 5th, and every Saturday in January, United Way of the Desert will be holding a 5K walk in different cities across the Coachella Valley. Each walk is FREE, but you're encouraged at each walk to bring an item that will be donated to locally.

Here is the list of items we're asking for at each location

  • January 5th: Indio High School - Bring non-perishable food items to stuff a DSUSD bus full of food. The food will be donated to FIND Food Bank.
  • January 12th: Desert Hot Springs Mission Springs Park - Bring school supplies for elementary school students. These supplies will go to elementary schools in PSUSD.
  • January 19th: La Quinta Civic Center Park - New books for Pre-K and Kindergarten age children. These books will be given to children in our Raising A Reader Program
  • January 26th: Palm Springs Health RunFitness Expo - No collection, though general donations will be accepted at our UWD table
