The Coachella Valley is home to a huge population of incredibly talented people, many of whom are retired or semi-retired. The Desert Pride Center is a fairly young organization that is in need of this talent in order to continue with our rapid growth.

If you have experience in publishing, layout (Microsoft Publisher), writing or editing, our Public Relations Committee could use your assistance. Finance, banking, investment and accounting skills would aid our Finance Committee. Grant writing, endowment and charitable giving skills are needed by our Grant Committee. Fund raising and events planning expertise would assist that committee. And, there are many other skills we haven’t even thought of!

If you feel you have a skill we could use and a few hours a month to spare, please consider becoming a part of the Desert Pride Center. Contact Sharon Doty or Bill Wheeler at The Center (327-2313) or [email protected].


We need your energy, enthusiasm, creative, perspective and ideas. We need people who can think outside of the box. If you’re this person, please e-mail Bruce McGraw at [email protected]. Our next meeting will be on February 14, 2006 at 5:30 p.m. at the Desert Pride Center. Come join us.
