In our effort to reach the goal of providing so many pies, and to keep the pies as consistent and fresh as possible, we are asking all organizations, businesses, and community members in the Coachella Valley to help by sponsoring pies, or making a monetary donation to the Friends of the Indio Senior Center. All proceeds go directly toward the purchase of pies. The last day to make a monetary donation is Thursday, Nov. 18 at noon. Contributions can also be made by raising awareness through social media platforms and encouraging others to donate!

To sponsor pies, please make checks out to the “Friends of the Indio Senior Center” and drop-off or mail to the Indio Senior Center at 45700 Aladdin Street, Indio CA 92201 no later than Thursday, Nov. 18.   For additional information, email
