Tis the Season to Give Back

The Dana Point Chamber of Commerce respectfully requests that you open your hearts (and your wallets)in the coming weeks as you conduct your holiday shopping – we’re happy to host donation boxes in our office for the following worthy causes:

Family Assistance Ministries
Show your spirit of giving by helping the hungry and homeless during this holiday season. Family Assistance Ministries (FAM) has a number of ways for you to get involved this holiday season. Click here to learn how you can adopt a family this Christmas, host a food drive, make a donation or simply make a toy donation. Provide a memorable Christmas to kids who may otherwise not get to enjoy the holiday by delivering gifts to families in need.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Capistrano Valley
Join the Chamber in our support of Operation Holiday Homework , benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Capistrano Valley.  The organization collects toys from businesses and individuals in the community for this annual event. Children enrolled in their “Power Hour” homework help and tutoring program earn points during the year, which they can redeem to “purchase” donated holiday gifts for family members through Operation Holiday Homework. The organization requests gifts suitable for boys, girls, babies, teens and parents.
Suggested gift types include but are not limited to Legos, board games, Barbies, remote control cars, gift cards, lotions, nail polish, tools, sports equipment, etc.
Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group
Donate a new toy for a military child or gift card/goodie box items for our troops. Once again, members of the Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group are looking to create some holiday magic for our Marines, Sailors and Families and we know Santa never disappoints! We hope his workshop will be filled with toys for the small children and lots of gift cards for our Marines and families again this year. Click here for a list of drop-off locations and suggested toys/gift cards list.
If for some reason you don’t have a chance to come to our office to make your donation, please consider bringing a new, unwrapped toy to our upcoming Holiday Mixer on December 10th. For every toy donated we are happy to provide you with two free raffle tickets (limit 10).
