about us

The Sand Dollar gift shops are sponsored by the Naval Officers’ Spouses’ Club of San Diego (NOSC). All proceeds earned from gift shop sales go back to the San Diego Military Community in the form of scholarships for military dependents and charity contributions. Please see the NOSC website for additional details regarding applications for charities and scholarships.


Both shops are staffed and operated entirely by volunteers. If you would like to volunteer in our shops, please click the link below.
