Santa Barbara County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association Thanks Westar Associates for $5,000 Contribution

The members and directors of the Santa Barbara County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association are deeply grateful to announce that a donation of $5,000 was contributed to the association’s charitable fund by Westar Associates.

The funds will be used to support local programs that make Santa Barbara County a better place to live and work.

Since the beginning of 2016, the SBCDSA charitable fund has donated $3,000 to the Orcutt Youth Softball Association to replace stolen equipment in time for opening day. 

The SBCDSA also contributed $3,000 to the Polar Plunge in Feburary to support the Special Olympics.

“Our association members live and work in the Santa Barbara community,” said Matt McFarlin, a member of the SBCDSA. “The contribution from Westar Associates will help us give back even more to our community this year.”

Local charities and nonprofits interested in requesting support from the SBCDSA should contact the association by sending an email to Todd Johnson at [email protected].

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
