Causes are what we stand for. You are what makes them happen!
The Big Thank You
Bells of Freedom has found that the one of the Best times to show our appreciation to our serving Military men, women and families is through our annual “The Big Thank-You” Adopt a Family project, for both our servicemen and women but also for our sponsors looking for a meaningful way to spend their tax deductible donations.
Princess to the Ball
Give Away and donate your gently used ball gowns, cocktail dresses, evening shoes and accessories to be made available through a ‘shopping day’ at Camp Pendleton to allow young marine wives the opportunity to ‘shop’ for evening wear for the upcoming Marine Ball that takes place in early November.
Trees for the Troops
You can purchase a Christmas tree for a local military single enlisted or family in Bells of Freedom’s “Trees for the Troops” fundraiser for the Emergency Care Fund. With just $50.00, a beautiful 6-7 foot Christmas tree will be donated and delivered to enlisted singles and families at our local Camp Pendleton and MiraMar Bases in your name.
Friends With Causes
Friends With Causes is made up of volunteer enlisted Marines currently based at Camp Pendleton. They take donations collected – from Dance Hearts, Bells of Freedom, and others – and purchases emergency care items like toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, etc. They add some extra goodies, package them up, and send to Afghanistan, Iraq and any other areas where we have our enlisted serving in battle. They do not focus only on Marines, but send care packages to all branches of the US Service.
Marine of the Month
The Marine of the Month Program recognizes a member of the currently deployed USS Pearl Harbor each month, nominated by ship commanders and chaplains as leaders among the men and women of their platoon. Each recognized Marine is celebrated personally aboard ship while family back home receive gifts of store script, gift bags, toys made possible through donations and delivered by Tanya and Louis McKay of the Bells of Freedom program as thanks for their service with enthusiasm and mentorship.
Dance Hearts and the Bells of Freedom Program is dedicated to our in-service military men and women to the community they serve in providing emergency support in instances of great need, such as victim of fire, flood or natural disaster, personal hygiene products, food, baby and child care supplies such as formula, diapers, bedding, clothing; provision of school supplies and books where necessary; plus much more.
