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…
Since you will not be able to adopt a Marine this Thanksgiving perhaps you will consider donating to this cause instead. 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)
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.
Passport application acceptance has been suspended until the COVID-19 threat has been rescinded.
