The Irvine 2/11 Marine Adoption Committee has been busy supporting the City's adopted Marine battalion during the global pandemic as we mitigate the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
Volunteers have raised funds and put together 110 Welcome Home bags for Marines who recently returned to Camp Pendleton. During stay-at-home orders for COVID-19, Marines are immediately put into a 14-day quarantine upon their return from deployment.
Irvine 2/11 Marine Adoption Committee volunteers solicited support throughout the community to put together extensive Welcome Home bags for the Marines to use during theses quarantines. Supplies included:
- Pillows and sheets
- Shower Towels
- Toilet Paper and Paper Towels
- Snacks and beverages for 14 days
- Hand sanitizer
- Homemade cloth masks
Those looking to support Irvine's adopted Marine battalion can donate to the Irvine 2/11 Marine Adoption Committee yearlong. Donations from the community support a variety of activities including events and care packages for active-duty personnel and their families. Learn more here.
