The Salvation Army Food Distribution takes place starting at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, September 26, at the Wonder Valley Community Center, 80526-½ Amboy Road, Wonder Valley, CA 92277. The Community Center is located between the Fire Station and the palm tree cell tower.
The distribution is first come first served, and ends when there is no more food. The distribution is open to Wonder Valley residents, who self-certify on site. No documentation is required, though you will need to fill out a form the first time you attend.
The distribution will be “shopping style.” You will take what you like from a selection of food from Trader Joe’s. Please be mindful that people behind you need food, as well, and only take what you need. There may also be a selection of fresh fruits and vegetables.
A Salvation Army worker will be present to help people apply for Energy Assistance Funds (EAF) in partnership with Southern California Edison and the United Way. This program provides up to $100 towards a SoCal Edison bill for those who qualify. This program is open to anyone in the Morongo Basin, not just Wonder Valley residents.
To qualify you will need three things:
- An appointment. There are 10 appointments available this month. Call Teresa Sitz at 760-367-9880 for an appointment.
- Your most recent Southern California Edison bill.
- Your most recent proof of income.
Appointments will be scheduled starting at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, September 26, at the Wonder Valley Community Center, 80526-½ Amboy Road, Wonder Valley, CA 92277.
