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.

Timmy’s Story

Timmy spent his childhood baffling the medical community. His digestive issues and seizure activity were so profound, doctors didn’t understand how he could still be alive. His mom devoted herself to medical research and finding a place that could care for her son. Between hospitalizations, he lived in various group homes in New York. At the last one, he had so many injuries his mom sought another solution. They headed west.

Since moving into an Angel View home, Timmy is calmer, more expressive, and has far fewer seizures. He loves the staff, his housemates, our therapy dogs and his word board. He’s so adored by staff, his mother says happily, “Now he has more than one mommy.”
