Adopt-a-Family Marine Gift-Giving Program


Make the holidays brighter for some families of our City’s adopted Headquarters Battalion, 1st Marine Division through the annual Adopt-A-Marine program.

Every year, countless military members spend the holidays away from loved ones. In gratitude for their service, you can make a difference to those who protect our freedoms by providing holiday gifts for Marine families.  As part of the program, participating Marines provide a “wish list” for their children to the family readiness officer at Camp Pendleton. That information is then relayed to City staff, which works to link families with generous community members interested in providing gifts that are delivered to Camp Pendleton before the holidays.   

To adopt a family and for more information, contact adoptamarinefamily@cityofmissionviejo.org or 949-470-3014.
