This is the time of year we stop and give thanks for all the blessings we have. If you're interested in showing your gratitude to the brave men and women who serve our country in the military as well as giving thanks to the families that support them behind the scenes, consider being a Secret Santa. The Armed Services YMCA at Camp Pendelton offers a Secret Santa program for members of the general public to show their appreciation to military members by sponsoring a family each year.
Through the Secret Santa program, a military family (with a junior Service Member ranking E-5 or below) will fill out their own "wish list" of what the military family wants/needs for Christmas. These lists are filtered through the Armed Services YMCA staff and passed along ot members of the San Diego community interested in being a Secret Santa. Along with the wishes, the sponsoring civilian family will be given the first names of all family members, the ages of the children, their clothing sizes (where appropriate), the rank of the active military member and the unit they serve in. The sponsoring family shop for items on the list , wrap the gifts and drop them off at the YMCA administrative office. Members of the YMCA staff will then hand out the gifts to the military families on specified days just before Christmas.
The Secret Santa program at the Armed Services YMCA in Camp Pendelton has been an incredible success over the year for both the families of our military members as well as the San Diego community at large. If you, your company or an organization you belong to wish to be a Secret Santa, please call 760-385-4921 today.
