Desert Guild

The Big Hearts for Little Hearts Desert Guild Chapter was founded in 2002 by a group of active leaders in the Coachella Valley community. The heart of this chapter is firmly rooted in appreciation for the service Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital (LLUCH) provides to critically ill desert community children.

The Desert Guild is committed to supporting the children hospitalized at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital by developing programs and projects that address the critical needs of these children and their families.

The Guild is committed to educating the public to view Children’s Hospital as THE BEST place for our valley’s children when they are sick or injured. The Guild believes that ‘our children deserve the best’!
