During our country’s recent economic downturn, we have experienced an increase in those in need of support.

We continue to surpass previous distribution numbers. To date, we have been fortunate to have the resources to fulfill the demand on our facilities, but it would be a lie to say things aren’t tight these days.

Participate in the Albertsons Community program.


The Albertsons Community Partners program is a way to reward non-profit organizations in the local community.

Once you enroll in the Community Partners program, you receive custom key tags. Each time a supporter shops at Albertsons and scans the key tag; Friends In The Desert earns a percentage of your purchase. The supporter still gets the same great price from Albertsons!

Friends has just received a shipment of key tags.   And they are ready to hand out to you. The key tags will be handed out to serving volunteers and others that stop by. We can also send you a link to print off a temporary key tag.
