During the Holidays San Clemente Military Family Outreach enjoys a wide range of events. We kicked off the month with the Mary’s Feast Celebration and rolled on to a few other activities. SCMFO received a very sweet donation of 100 Boxes of handmade toffee. These treats were redirected to a Christmas celebration at the retirement community Reata Glenn for military families, to the military spouses and clergy in attendance at the Mary’s Feast Celebration and to several families at the north end of Camp Pendleton.
Additionally, SCMFO launched the Thank-A-Family program where members of the community became sponsors to a Military Family (E-6 and below) for the purpose of enhancing their Christmas celebration! The sponsors reached out to the families to consider their needs and wants for Christmas – for which the sponsor fulfilled the needs. The results from this ranged between Trips to Disneyland (a family dream) to some of the more typical “wake up in the morning and under the tree is..." items.
