“I am very proud of the continuing and unwavering dedication of the Gulls membership in support of so many Ventura County charities,” said Channel Islands Gulls President, Dina Schwalbach.

In addition to the money raised, the Gulls held drives for household items and toys for some of the charities they support, and many of the Channel Islands Gulls volunteer their time to the charities. Schwalbach explained that the non-profit organizations the Gulls donate to do not receive federal funding. “Through our financial contributions, volunteer hours, and donations of goods we support a variety of grassroots organizations that make a difference for literally thousands of individuals living in Ventura County.”
