2019 OPERATION BABY SHOWER UPDATE
The May 23, 2019 BabyShower for 25 Military Mom's was a big success due to the generosity of our ladies in SCARWF. It was very rewarding to see these young Mom's to be have fun, eat, and receive all the special gifts. They played 2 games and one was for the Mom's to walk around and get to know each other, since most are from different states and some of the Marines are deployed. One gal that was pregnant was actually the Marine. Two newborns were there and one Mom was in the hospital. They were very grateful for the shower and all the special gifts. We received many thanks for what we had done.

2017 SCARWF MILITARY NOTES – November Update
Camp Pendleton Deluz Community
Our goal this year is to provide at least 35 Marine families with a Thanksgiving turkey dinner. Thanks to generous SCARWF members we are more than half way to our goal. Albertson’s (Talega) is giving us a special deal of $49.00 per Turkey dinner plus “something extra”. Please consider providing a dinner for a needy Marine family. Thanksgiving is a difficult time for military families. They are young, away from home and either the mother or father may be deployed.
At the meeting on November 8, the last meeting before the holiday, please place your donations in the box on the military table. Donations can also be mailed to SCARWF, PO Box 3512, San Clemente 92674. Our SCARWF volunteers will deliver the baskets on November 21.
In December we become Santa’s Elves for the Marine children of the Deluz Community at Camp Pendleton. At our December 13th meeting, please bring an unwrapped toy.
The military table is located at the entrance to our meeting. Take a minute to look at the pictures of the smiling Marine Moms, Dads, and children, in past years, as they were receiving their Thanksgiving Turkey Dinners.
On November 22, nine members of the San Clemente Area Republican Women, Federated traveled to Camp Pendleton to deliver turkey dinners to 29 military families of the DeLuz Community. This year SCARWF provided dinners for 9 more families than a year ago. The families who received the dinners all expressed their appreciation as several spoke of their loneliness being away from home on this family holiday. Most had children with them, many were pregnant and all had big smiles on their faces as they filled their arms with a big turkey and a box which included stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, and cranberry sauce. This is the Second Annual “Thanksgiving Dinners for the Marines Project” of the San Clemente Area Republican Women which is completely funded by member donations. At their December meeting they will be collecting toys for the children of the marine families.
Some recent past activities include providing Thanksgiving Turkey Dinners, toys for the children at Christmas, and voter registration AND...
Operation Baby Shower for 22 mothers-to-be! Held April 19, 2016
SCARWF'S OPERATION BABY SHOWER!!!
On April 19th, 15 SCARWF ladies arrived at the DeLuz Community of Camp Pendleton for Operation Baby Shower. With them they had lots of food, 25 layette boxes, each containing a handmade quilt, 3 onesies and an outfit, a receiving blanket, a toy, teething ring, pacifier and a hooded bath towel. In addition were 25 packages of diapers, 25 gifts for the mothers-to-be, game prizes, raffle prizes and door prizes, including 3 large gift baskets, a box of 180 diapers and a baby stroller. Twenty two guests enjoyed the food, games, gifts and social time. One Mom-to-be said she has been here only a week and was so lonely but because of the shower now has so many friends. Another gave birth the week before so our youngest attendee was adorable at 1 week old. We even registered 2 Republican voters! The huge smiles on all the faces were made possible by all SCARWF members with your very generous donations. We received so many “thank yous” which we bring back to you!
