The Camp Pendleton Collection Drive this past July was such a success we have decided to do it again!
There will be FOUR collection sites – one in Torrance, one in Studio City, and new locations in Bellflower and Culver City
  • 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. Rotary Clubs in District 5280 have been very generous to our Marines and it is that time again for us to collect items to be donated to the Warrior Warehouse on the base.
We are accepting new and gently used baby items, small children’s clothes, diapers, baby wipes, etc.  New items may be ordered (Amazon) and shipped to one of the four addresses below. Also needed are household items – everything a young couple would need to set up an apartment – dishes, pots and pans, silverware, linens, furniture, etc.
The truck from Camp Pendleton will arrive to pick up all donated items on Monday, October 26, 2020.  All donated items must be received by Sunday, October 25.  Please contact Dave Henseler, Jim Miceli, Gerardo Jaramillo, or Rene Mejia to make arrangements.
