Desert Hot Springs, CA.- While the economy is showing some signs of improvement, there are still many families in Desert Hot Springs struggling to make ends meet. The holidays add extra pressure to already strained family budgets. To help ease the holiday pressure, Council Members Russell Betts and Adam Sanchez have arranged to supply 250 turkeys to Desert Hot Springs residents.
“We hope this will help take some of the financial pressure off families in our city that are struggling this Holiday Season,” said Betts. “I certainly want thank John Nielsen of Dillon Road House for helping make this possible. He is obviously a friend of this city.”
As a business owner in Desert Hot Springs, Nielsen is aware of the tough times residents of Desert Hot Springs are going through. When contacted by Betts and Sanchez to see if he would be willing to help, he agreed.
“John saw the need and immediately said yes,” said Sanchez. “This is no small gesture. It is really nice to see a business owner care so much about our city and to know 250 families in our city will not be without a turkey for Thanksgiving.”
The Turkeys will be passed out at Dillon Road House, 64647 Dillon Road, Desert Hot Springs (on Dillon Road just west of Little Morongo Road) at the following dates and times:
Monday: 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm November 19
