Helping our Community during COVID-19 pandemic
All of us have been impacted by this COVID-19 pandemic, some more than others. We are grateful for the healthcare heroes and the thousands of essential workers that are working tirelessly to serve our communities. Here are a few ways in which Pechanga was able to support our healthcare heroes, our Team Members, and our broader community.
In early April, the Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians donated 3,000 N95 masks to three local hospitals, including Temecula Valley Hospital, Rancho Springs Medical Center, and Inland Valley Medical Center. Each of the facilities received 1,000 N95 masks for doctors, nurses, and frontline medical staff. This was at a time the cases of COVID-19 continued to rise at a fast pace in California and in Riverside County.More Details
Following the resort/casino’s temporary closure, Pechanga donated nearly $100,000 worth of food to local charities. This donation came just at the right time for these groups to help the area’s most vulnerable.

Despite temporarily closing on March 16, Pechanga provided pay and health benefits to all of its Team Members through the end of March. The Tribe also paid for 100% of health benefits for all its team members though the end of June.More Details
In honor of National Nurses’ Week, Pechanga and its Steak N’ Shake franchise donated and dropped off 350 frosty milkshakes for the nurses at Temecula Valley Hospital. Pechanga sought to show a gesture of appreciation for the medical professionals who have been working tirelessly amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Click below to see more on this fun donation.More Details
