On Saturday and Sunday, the Assistance League of Capistrano Valley will join forces with five other Assistance League Chapters from Orange, San Diego and Riverside Counties to provide back-to-school clothing for Marine families at Camp Pendleton. More than 600 children from pre-school to high school will receive new school clothes, toiletries, school supplies and toys from the volunteers. Parents will also receive vouchers which can be redeemed for new shoes for their children.
This is the 10th year the Assistance League Capistrano Chapter has provided clothing to Marine families. Additionally, this year the Capistrano chapter is celebrating its 35th year as a chartered chapter of the National Assistance League. Proceeds from the Bargain Box Thrift Store and the Annual Christmas Home Tour are used to fund this event. The Thrift store is located at 526 N. El Camino in San Clemente, and the ninth annual Christmas Home Tour will take place on Sunday, Dec. 6. This year the Home Tour features four homes in Dana Point and surrounding towns.
