Social Justice Spotlight: Navy League of Santa Barbara

By Heidi Tobe on August 4, 2017

Earlier this year, we announced a new social justice coupon code initiative in which we identified several social justice organizations who are “fighting the good fight.” When you choose one of these organizations and enter their coupon code at checkout, you get $15 off the cost of a program and we donate $15 to that organization. You save and we give! Last month, we shared about Domestic Violence Solutions for Santa Barbara County, and today we are eager to tell you about the Navy League of Santa Barbara!

About the Navy League of Santa Barbara

The Navy league is a morale-enhancing civilian organization that has dedicated itself to providing ongoing support to service members and their families of the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and U.S. Flag Merchant. It is comprised of 65,000 civilian volunteers worldwide who have been providing recognition, moral and family support for over 100 years to service members and their families. The Santa Barbara charter was established in 1956. Since that time, thousands of volunteers have put in tens of thousands of hours of service towards those who have served our country.

Services Provided

The Navy League of Santa Barbara has a wide variety of programs serving military service members, their families, and the local community. Some of their services include: a family emergency fund that provides for day-to-day family emergencies that arise; higher education scholarships for continuing college education for service members, their spouses and families; sending postcards to active duty men and women; youth outreach and education, including character development and leadership training; ongoing financial and moral support for the families who have lost a loved one in action; award items for recognitions of jobs well done; and stocking libraries of adopted ships and submarines. The Navy League of Santa Barbara sponsors local ships and ship visits in Santa Barbara. Through this sponsorship, visiting crews are provided with activities while they are in port. Locally, they have adopted the U.S. Coast Guard’s Cutter BLACKFIN, the local Marine Safety Detachment, and the USS RONALD REAGAN (CVN 76) which is America's newest aircraft carrier.

Join the Fight

The Navy League of Santa Barbara is no doubt fighting the good fight and we are honored to come alongside them financially.  We hope you will check out their website to learn more about how you can get involved (you do not need to have served in the military in order to become a member of the Navy League!).
