BofA recognizes desert charity

Galilee Center, a facility in Mecca that provides basic needs such as food and clothing to disadvantaged migrants in the
Coachella Valley, has received a $200,000 grant from Bank of America.

The donation, part of Bank of America’s Neighborhood Builders Program, will allow the Galilee Center in Mecca to continue its charitable work and to keep operating its Mecca Comfort Station, according to a statement.

The station, which opened in November 2015, provides field workers and their families access to meals, showers, restrooms, laundry services and a community room.

“We are extremely grateful to Bank of America for awarding us the Neighborhood Builder grant,” said Gloria Gomez, Galilee Center’s chief executive officer, in the statement. “The generous funding and leadership training opportunities will help us further our mission of helping less fortunate individuals and families in the eastern Coachella Valley.”

Neighborhood Builders has donated more than $180 million and helped an estimated 900 nonprofits throughout the United States since it was started in 2004, according to the statement.
