Shelter from the Storm
SHELTER FROM THE STORM EXTENDS CONDOLENCES
Palm Desert, CA - Administration and staff were saddened to learn of the passing of Mr. Ed Young, our wonderful volunteer Santa Claus (see photo above) of many years.
Executive Director, Angelina Coe, noted the great loss. "Mr. Young truly loved the Shelter and playing Santa each year," she said. "He will be greatly missed." Young and his wife, Paula, both regularly participated in the annual holiday party held for shelter clients and their families. Dressed as Mr. and Mrs. Claus, the pair posed for photos with families and assisted in distributing gifts.
Mrs. Young and her daughter, Jennifer, have requested memoriam gifts to be made to Shelter From The Storm under the heading "Friends of Santa" in honor of Ed's love and commitment to the shelter and all the families being helped by our programs. Please call 760-674-0400 if you wish to remember Mr. Young in this way.
