Angel View Rancho Mirage Store Opens December 5

November 30, 2015

On Saturday, December 5, Angel View will open a 6,400 square foot store at 72747 Dinah Shore, its first location in Rancho Mirage.  The non-profit organization operates 19 stores in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.

The grand opening, slated for 9 a.m., will include a ribbon cutting, hourly drawings for gift certificates as well as a grand prize giveaway of a flat screen TV.
Proceeds from the sale of the donated items will be used to provide a wide range of essential services to children and adults with disabilities who live in Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

Angels View’s resale stores accept over 3 million pounds of donated material each year that is then resold, reused or recycled.  The stores offer shoppers great prices on gently used apparel, shoes, jewelry, accessories, books, household goods and more.
The Rancho Mirage store, which will employ half a dozen employees, will be open Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“We are excited to be opening a store in Rancho Mirage,” said Tracy Powers, general manager of Angel View resale stores. “Items that are donated and resold in our stores provide critical funding to support Angel View programs.” Angel View has plans to open another location early next year in Lake Elsinore (31712 Casino Drive).

Founded in 1954, Angel View offers three primary services for people with disabilities: 24-hour residential care for children and adults with disabilities, a therapeutic Day Program for adults with disabilities; and Angel View Outreach, which provides free supports and services to local families struggling to raise children with disabilities. Angel View resale stores generate vital revenues that enable the nonprofit to provide an exceptional quality of life for clients.

Francisco’s Story

Three days before his 18th birthday Francisco was in a car accident. The driver was unhurt, but Francisco, who attended Palm Springs High School, suffered a traumatic brain injury. Since then, he’s lived with his parents, who along with his siblings, provide his care.

Now 37, Francisco attends the Angel View Day Program for adults with developmental disabilities. One of his accomplishments is his improved punctuality. He’s ready each morning when our driver picks him up. These days, instead of sleeping in, Francisco enjoys companionship, recreation and therapeutic activities. He’s learning work skills like document shredding that will enable him to participate in our new work placement program. He can’t wait!
