VANC will be hosting FIVE Christmas parties for the children of active duty Marines. Over 700 service members and their families have been invited to come meet Santa and receive a gift. Included in these families are 75 pre-schoolers from Camp Pendleton Armed Forces YMCA pre-school who will also be visiting VANC on December 9th to meet Santa.

If you can assist Santa in gathering toys for these children, he would appreciate it. For children between the ages of 11-16,
a gift card from the store of your choice would be the simplest. For children under 11, new, unwrapped toys can be brought to
VANC at 1617 Mission Ave. Oceanside or call Lori at 760.722.1277 and she will make sure that the toys are given to Santa for the children.

Thank you and Merry Christmas,

The Veterans Association of North County (VANC) is working with Santa to make Christmas brighter for the children and families of active duty Marines stationed at Camp Pendleton.
