Ocean Sunset Drugs Makes Waves by Underwriting OSFB Annual Benefit

“The new Ocean Sunset Drug store is committed to helping in the North Beach community,” cited Jackie Morris.  Jackie’s family has a long history of supporting both Ocean Shores families and businesses.  “We are very excited to have Ocean Sunset Drug help underwrite the cost of Ocean Shores Food Bank’s annual benefits” said Sandy Harley, OSFB Executive Director.

What better way to help OSFB but to underwrite the cost of the annual benefit so more donation and auction dollars go to those less fortunate in our community.  The new Ocean Sunset Drug store just recently opened and provides products and services very much needed in our community with the addition beyond general store goods of a pharmacy and the walk-in clinic.  Jackie noted “when you are hungry everything looks bleak and I am glad we can partner with our local citizens who will be attending the April 18 OSFB benefit to raise more money to help reduce hunger and give people hope.”

You can purchase individual and table-of-8 tickets for the April 18 OSFB benefit online at: ANNUAL EVENT TICKETS

Please drop into the Ocean Sunset Drug to check them out and especially to say thank-you for this generous gift.

P.S. Jackie mentioned that the whole month of April will be “round-up” month at Ocean Sunset Drugs with the customer change collected going to OSFB.  Thank you again Jackie and the whole Morris family for supporting our local community.

At the Antique Show you will find familiar and new faces and LOTS of really cool stuff that you will definitely want to take home. Booths offering lots of one of a kind furniture, collectibles, books, records, masks, clothing, signs, etc. Nurse Nancy will be there to evaluate and repair your dolls.

There will be a special “1st Peek & Purchase” with music, food, drinks on Friday night.  See Facebook for how to sign up: https://www.facebook.com/events/754825981593105/

Banking on Our Community

Community is more vibrant when everyone pitches in.  A can of food here and a dollar there do add up to make for a brighter day for those less fortunate.  Shelly Riley, AVP Branch Manager, of 1st Security Bank, presented both a $1,000 check and a barrel of cans to the Ocean Shores Food Bank.

During the recent winter months 1st Security Bank collected food and cash donations for the OSFB.    “We are encouraged by the example 1st Security sets both here in Ocean Shores and across their network,” mentioned Sandy Harley, Executive Director of OSFB.  With 21 locations, 1st Security Bank actively supports over 270 non-profits and encourages bank employees to volunteer.  Thank you, 1st Security and your customers, for making a difference in our community.  We are proud to partner with you.

Real Help from Windermere

The team of realtors at Windermere Real Estate passed a hat (an envelope actually) for contributions to OSFB. It is inspiring to see how businesses like Windermere take action to help us eliminate food insecurity in our community.

Seen here, Jim Donahoe, Branch Manager, presents the aforementioned envelope containing $500 worth of checks to Sandy Harley, Executive Director of the Ocean Shores Food Bank. These funds are most appreciated to help pay for the additional food purchases the food bank makes during the colder winter months and to help pay for specialty food items for the holidays.

Pennies From Heaven (via ACE Customers)

Would you like to round your purchase up today and donate it to the Ocean Shores Food Bank?  Doesn’t sound like much ($0.99 cents or less) but a month later, ACE Hardware gave the OSFB a check for $4,582.72.  That is a lot of pennies and a lot of needed food OSFB can buy to help feed the hungry in our community.

Bill Young, president of OSFB, accepted the check from Stephen Buck and the wonderful ACE Hardware crew recently.

Before the photo, Bill talked to the employees about the “round-up” program.  They said most people took it in stride, but some were a little more adamant giving the staff pause.  “No, I don’t want to round up, one said, I want to donate $20 and the change!”  The resourceful ACE crew figured out how to add the $20 to the round-up.  “We are so very happy to have the generous support of the local community,” Bill said, “Not only does the Ocean Shores Food Bank want to thank ACE Hardware for a successful donation drive but we want to thank all the ACE customers who gave a little or a lot.”

Our community is blessed by so many pennies (and dollars too) this winter.  And the next time you visit ACE Hardware, thank the crew that made it possible.  Thank you!

Mystery Food Delivery Solved!

When volunteers arrived at the OS Food Bank, on Wednesday, December 18, they discovered three carloads of food being delivered, but without any clear indication from where it came.

While weighing all the food, the volunteers discovered, among the many bags, several labeled “NAPA Auto Parts”. Putting on her sleuthing hat, Anita made a phone call and cleared up the mystery: Jenny, who answered at NAPA, said that they had put out a box to collect food donations for the food bank, and people just kept bringing in food, totaling 1,319 pounds!

We are grateful for the wonderful participation by NAPA in helping us eliminate food insecurity in our community.

The Spirit of Christmas Reigns in Ocean Shores

The Spirit of Christmas was everywhere as the North Beach Singers performed their annual Christmas Concert at Faith Community Church to benefit the Ocean Shores Food Bank. The generosity was overwhelming as concert goers donated $1,156 and 407 pounds of food.

The air was filled with the spirit of Christmas on Friday evening and Saturday afternoon as the North Beach Singers once again performed their Christmas Concert. Holiday songs such as “I Want a Hippo” to “The First Noel” rang through Faith Community Church. As always, the audience sing-a-long was one of the highlights. We are grateful for the wonderful voices and dedication of the North Beach Singers to our community.
