Dana Point 5th Marines Regiment Support Group is seeking the public’s help for sponsoring a Marine or Marines for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. By sponsoring, donors are providing an opportunity to bring together Marines, Sailors, Wounded Warriors from Camp Pendleton and their families in a warm, friendly atmosphere accompanied by a Thanksgiving dinner.
The dinner will be hosted at Waterman’s Harbor in Dana Point by the Collins Family. Marines and their families will receive a full meal, open bar, dessert, entertainment and raffle prizes. The donation to sponsor a dinner is $35.
“It is a way for our local folks to show that our country appreciates the sacrifices they are making. Most importantly, it is a way to say ‘Thank You,’” said Terry Rifkin, president of the Dana Point 5th Marines Regiment Support Group.
Individuals may donate online at www.DanaPoint5thMarines.com via a PayPal site or can send a check to the Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group, P.O Box 471, Dana Point, CA, 92629.
