CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. -- The Courtnage family was one of 310 to be sponsored at the ASYMCA’s Secret Santa Event.

Military families E4 and below with children registered in October and gave the ASYMCA a wish list of gifts, which could include toys, electronics, bikes, clothing, household items and gift cards. Families, organizations and businesses in the local community who volunteered to become a sponsor received the wish lists and used it as a guide to buy presents for each family.

When the families arrived to receive their wrapped gifts they wrote thank you cards for their sponsors. They then drove behind the ASYMCA where they received a holiday ham, and gift cards along with the presents their sponsors donated.
