Did you know there are over 70,000 Marines at Camp Pendleton? Did you know more than 160 babies are born to the Marine families each month? Did you know there are 10,000 children under the age of 5?
Many of the Marines are deployed when their babies are born and family and friends may not be nearby. With very low income, most do not have all they need for newborns and small children, or basic items to set up an apartment.
The Rotary Clubs in District 5280 have been very generous to our Marines and it is that time again for us to donate items for this program.
Here is a photo of our club's contribution to the Marines. These donations were received from our community and from our El Segundo Rotarians. We hope these items bring joy and relief to the wonderful families of our service men and women. Thank you to everyone who donated! ...and a big Thank YOU to our amazing service men and women out there. ... We appreciate you!
