The Twenty-Nine Palms Band of Mission Indians was set to host a dedication ceremony Wednesday for three mobile homes it donated to families who were displaced by a fire last year in Indio.

The event is scheduled to take place at 1 p.m. at the Pueblo Del Sol Mobile Home Park, 81351 Avenue 46, near Indio High School. Tribal Chairman Darrell Mike and Indio City Councilman Glenn Miller are to present the homes to the families.

The total value of the three donated mobile homes is more than $450,000.

Fire destroyed three homes at the park on Sept. 30, 2020. Officials said the blaze began in one double-wide unit, then spread to two others.

Ten people were displaced in all — five adults and five children. They were assisted by the American Red Cross after the flames were knocked down.

“This is Indio — we are stronger together,” Miller said shortly after the fire.

“We are proud to be a part of community where everyone, from the tribes to the city, to our school district, comes together to help those in need.”
