Armed Services YMCA


Ball Gown Giveaway

Each September the Armed Services YMCA Camp Pendleton 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. 
We are currently seeking donations!
We are accepting gently used and new gowns cleaned and on hangers at our office until September 6, 2019. Along with gowns the Camp Pendleton Armed Services YMCA is also collecting jewelry, evening shoes, purses and shawls as well as men's formal suits. 
For more information please contact Elvira Martinez at
