Camp Pendleton will NOT be allowing their Marines to be “adopted” this Thanksgiving nor are we allowed to bring them food. However, they still need our help…
Many of the young Marines at Camp Pendleton have young children and those kids will be homeschooled or attending virtual schooling this Fall. For those of you who have kindergarten or elementary aged children or grandchildren you know what a challenge this was this past Spring and will be again this Fall. One of their biggest challenges is having enough school supplies in the family housing to accommodate all these students. So, we have teamed up with the Armed Services YMCA (ASYMCA) on the base to help them obtain school supplies.
We are utilizing some of the surplus funds leftover from last year’s event to provide pens, pencils, crayons, markers, notebooks, folders, binders, lined paper, colored paper, etc.
You may join in this effort! Since you will not be able to adopt a Marine this Thanksgiving perhaps you will consider donating to this cause instead. You have two options:
1. Make an online donation directly to the Camp Pendleton ASYMCA at: https://www.asymca.org/camp-pendleton-donate (please note this works on a desktop but not so great on a mobile phone or ipad)
2. Purchase school supplies and drop them off in the large cardboard box on the doorstep of the Frackelton Family at 9382 Hazel Circle in Villa Park. Deadline is SATURDAY, AUGUST 1st at 8pm. On Sunday, August 2nd these supplies will be delivered to the ASYMCA in Oceanside so the Marines kids can start school the following week. The school supplies desired include pens, pencils, crayons, markers, notebooks, folders, binders, lined paper, colored paper, etc.
Thank you in advance for supporting this cause and we will keep you posted if there is an opportunity to do more come the holidays. We are saddened our normal event won’t happen this Thanksgiving but we can take satisfaction in knowing we are helping out our beloved Marines with school supplies.

The height of wildfire season begins in mid-summer and runs through early autumn. During the weeks preceding this season, it is important for residents to educate themselves on how to best protect themselves, their homes, and their communities from the threat of wildfire.
Depending on fire intensity, size and wind speed, embers can be carried more than a mile ahead of the fire. Consequently, homes located blocks away from the flame front are vulnerable to ignition and complete destruction. It's important to create a wildfire action plan now, long before a wildfire threatens your home. For more information on how to prepare for wildfire season, click here.
The Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control District (OCMVCD) is observing an increase in mosquito activity in urban and coastal areas of the County and three surrounding counties (Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Diego) have detected West Nile virus in their mosquito samples. This early season virus activity in the region is concerning when coupled with high mosquito abundance. It is essential for all residents in Orange County to be active in eliminating mosquito breeding in and around their properties to help reduce the number of adult mosquitoes.
Remember, mosquito control is a shared responsibility. Click here to learn how you can take charge of your yard.
