How You Can Help

For $50, you can help a child of a deployed Marine have a happy Christmas morning.

Make a tax deductible contribution for the number of children you wish to help. We hope that each donor can contribute at least $100 to the cause; but any amount will be used to put a smile on a child’s face.

How to Donate

  • The Camp Pendleton Armed Services YMCA accepts donations for the Secret Santa project. You can donate online, via mail, or by phone, and even set up a recurring donation.
  • However you choose to donate, Make sure to direct your donation to the Secret Santa project. The image below shows how to do that for an online credit card donation.

Thank you for your generous support of this program.

The Secret Santa program is run entirely by volunteers so every dollar we collect buys gifts for the children. If you have any questions, contact us.
