This is the 17th year in a row that the Morongo Band has donated turkeys to the City. “Even during the times that our tribe faced great difficulties and hardship, we always found a way to give to others,” said Morongo Tribal Chairman Robert Martin.  “That spirit of giving lives on at Morongo and we hope to alleviate such uncertainty for those in need this holiday season.”
