CWONC has adopted the Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 369 at Camp Pendleton. In the past, we have purchased special bamboo socks for this squadron who were stationed in Afghanistan and assisted in putting on a Beach Bash for the 500+ members of this squadron and their families. We are a participant in their annual Santa Fly-In providing gifts for the younger children, cookies and a reading room. We have other events we work on to show our appreciation to these brave men and women serving to protect our country.
Club members may help by volunteering their time for any events for the squadron and collecting donations to purchase needed items, purchase more socks, package and ship items overseas.
OPERATION HELO BABIES
Club members purchase, make and collect blankets, bibs, diaper bags, onesies, hats, booties, clothing, diapers, baby shampoo/wash, teddy bears, baby photo albums, rattles, teethers, bottles and pacifiers. Members may clip coupons for diapers, formula, juice and baby products. Members may also contribute material, batting, thread or yarn. Club will send these items (baby shower in a box) to expectant mothers in our adopted squadron.
