True Blue: Navy Families Benefactors, Inc. is the vision of Sharon Ellis. Our all-volunteer 501-( c) 3 nonprofit was established in 2012, in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL
"I knew I wanted to do something for our local Navy sailors and their families. I just did not know what to do until my husband and I had a chance meeting with ADM Natter, and Steve Kupcha, a dear friend and former Navy Seal, in the TPC Nineteen."
At that meeting, ADM Natter told Sharon and Mike about ADM Mullen's “Sea of Goodwill” initiative. "Hearing about that initiative provided a road map for me to form our organization and give back to our sailors and their families."
Since our inception, we have been hard at work on our first $1.4M major project approved by former Secretary of the Navy, Mr. Ray Mabus. We are gifting monies to turn Naval Station Mayport’s Lake Wonderwood into a recreational area for sailors and their families for generations to come. A concrete walking/biking/running trail will encompass the lake with playgrounds, pavilions, fitness stations and more.
