Holiday Baskets for Marine Families.

The 29 Palms Marine Base is the pride of the Morongo Basin.  Many of are Marine families are separated from their loved ones while on duty overseas.  Sunset Rotary plays a small part in helping these families have a brighter Christmas.  Hams, mashed potatoes, assorted veggies, fruits, and of course a desert are distributed to families through the help of the Armed Services YMCA just before the Christmas Holiday.
