BALL GOWN GIVEAWAY


Each September the Armed Services YMCA holds its annual Ball Gown Giveaway to provide evening gowns, men's suits, shoes and accessories for military spouses to attend Navy and Marine Corps Birthday Balls. Following the event and in effort to support as many military families as possible, the remaining gowns and accessories are shared with Twenty-nine Palms, Miramar, and Yuma for their separate events.

LOCATION: Stuart Mesa/Edson Community Center

REGISTRATION OPENS: August 16th, 2019 @ 9:00AM

HOME HOSPITALITY


Each Thanksgiving, this program allows Marine students an opportunity to be adopted by a local community family. They share a home cooked meal, see area attractions, and spend a day making friends. In most cases, this is the first holiday away from home for them. Many of the friendships that are made last through the Marine's career.

MAKING AN IMPACT

The Armed Service YMCA of Camp Pendleton believes that all service members and their families deserve support, enrichment, recognition, security, and opportunities to improve their family bonds, resiliency, and health/wellness. We provide programs and services designed to alleviate stress, assist with life challenges, and increase the morale and welfare of our nation’s heroes, enabling them to better focus on their mission of service.

The Armed Services YMCA of Camp Pendleton coordinates with local installation leadership to ensure a network of support for military families stationed on Camp Pendleton. This collaboration allows us to identify and address gaps in services that pose a hardship to service members and their families—hardships that can negatively affect mission readiness.
