We have several events that we run throughout the year at Camp Pendleton. All our events are for active Marine and Navy families currently serving at Camp Pendleton.

  • Our annual Back to School event is September 12 & 13. We partner with six other Assistance League chapters of Southern California to provide school aged-children (preschool through high school) with new clothes for the upcoming school year. Our chapter is in charge of coordinating this event, plus distributing two new tops/shirts to each child.
  • Assistance League of Capistrano Valley hosts two other events throughout the year at Camp Pendleton. These events are for infants/toddlers. Each child receives two new outfits purchased by us.  We partner with the Laguna Beach Chapter that supplies diapers and wipes.

We began our philanthropy at Camp Pendleton in 2004/2005. The first years we hosted only one event the Back to School event. We had 156 children attend. This event is now held over two days and we have 680-700 children that attend. Due to demand, we began hosting the infant/toddler events in 2005/2006. The first year we had two events with 315 children total. We now have three infant/toddler events throughout the year. The total number of children attending this past year was 1585.
