Shaun Samaro's first engagement with The LGBTQ Community Center of the Desert was entertaining at the prestigious O'Donnell Country Club, for their annual Ocotillo event. Prior to relocating to Palm Springs, Shaun sailed the seven seas for 8 years as a Performance Artist for major cruise lines such as Norwegian, Holland America, and Carnival. Originally born in San Bernardino, Shaun always enjoyed visiting the Coachella Valley.
Shaun first started volunteering on Tuesdays and Thursdays at The Food Bank before stepping into his role as Food Bank Coordinator in October of 2020. He is thrilled and grateful to serve this wonderful community with kindness and compassion.
