PALM SPRINGS — The Palm Springs Air Museum has set up a community fundraiser to help Cathedral City residents recover from Tropical Storm Hilary.

Anyone donating $200 or more via this fundraising page will receive one free ride on the museum’s C-47 Skytrain. The promotion is limited to one per person.

As of Wednesday morning, $3,620 had already been raised.

“During these difficult times, our hearts extend to all in our community who’ve felt the impact of the recent storm,” museum Vice Chairman Fred Bell said in a statement. “The Palm Springs Air Museum wants to be a beacon of hope and solidarity as the community faces adversity. This is why we are offering these free rides (usually $125 each) to those who donate online through our IndieGoGo page. We hope to raise $20,000 for the residents. The funds will be given to the local community to distribute.”
