Island View Outfitters in Isla Vista has partnered with Santa Barbara Foundation and United Way of Santa Barbara in a Stronger as a Community Campaign by designing and printing our Community Tee, which is now available for purchase and to ship on its website, www.islandviewoutfitters.com.
Proceeds of $5 per shirt from shirt sales will be donated to COVID-19 Response Effort for Santa Barbara County, a joint fund by Santa Barbara Foundation and United Way of Santa Barbara.
The joint partnership allows both groups to address the needs of individuals, families and nonprofits with proper coordination while rapidly meeting the needs of the community as they arise through collaborative decision-making.
Island View Outfitters is the retail arm of High Desert Print Company, formerly Isla Vista Screen Printing. The company has been in business for more than 10 years, originally starting as a small screen-printing shop within a garage in Isla Vista while an undergrad at UCSB.
The company has spearheaded a number of campaigns over the years, which include donation campaigns for the Thomas Fire and Debris Flow and the 2014 Isla Vista shooting. Island View Outfitters donated more than $20,000 in shirt proceeds for past campaigns.
Island View Outfitters is multi-dimensional with bulk, custom screen printing, in-house designed retail merchandise for sale at its store, and venturing into new opportunities between brand development and integrated micro community manufacturing via economic development.
