SteamRocket, a leading nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering STEAM programs (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) for children in the Coachella Valley, is thrilled to announce that it has received over $6000 in funding from the 2024 CV Giving Day. The event was generously sponsored by CV Giving Day, First Bank, NPO Centric, RAP Foundation, Auen Foundation, KESQ News, Desert Charities News, and KESQ News Channel 3.
