Our 2nd Annual Holiday Drive & Day of Service is coming up!!
This year we will again host a Holiday Drive and Day of Service to collect donations for local homeless shelters. We are looking for new and slightly used clothing items, non-perishable food items, and toiletries. We are looking in particular for travel size toiletries to make care bags for those without stable housing. The travel size items are easier to carry for those who are moving around a lot. As you travel this fall, please bring back any unused complimentary hotel travel size toiletries (if you pack them up each night, the housekeeping staff will replace them each morning)!
Takiya and Brittany (contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org) are available to pick up your donations, or you can join us on the Day of Service (Saturday, December 8th 10am-1:30pm at the Ocean City Recreation Center 7th and Haven Avenue) where will be packing the care bags and organizing the donations. We hope you are able to join us this holiday season in giving back to those who are less fortunate!

Each of our 2017 honorees contributed immensely to the development of the thriving Black community in Ocean City. We recognize them for their love, their spirit, and their greatness. Learn more on the Honorees page.
Juneteenth represents the day, June 19, 1865, that enslaved Africans in Texas finally learned of their freedom, more than 2 years after the Emancipation Proclamation. This day has been celebrated in the Black community since then. Learn more about Juneteenth on the History of Juneteenth page.
