SCMFO Thanksgiving Giveaway 2024

This will be SCMFO’s 12th Anniversary of providing 1,000 Turkeys to the junior level active duty Military Families at Camp Pendleton (E-9 and below).  As our signature morale event each year, everyone looks forward to getting the Thanksgiving Dinner into the hands of our local heroes – including the volunteers (a wide range of community groups).

We are targeting providing a 14-16 lb. Turkey, Cranberry Sauce, Creamy Mashed Potatoes Mix and Turkey Gravy, Turkey Stuffing mix, some vegetables and a choice of Pumpkin or Apple Pie (and maybe we'll provide some easy “how to cook a Turkey” recipes and/or the "1-800 Butterball" hotline number…).
