By Press Release

OCEAN CITY – For family members affected by cancer, sharing their experiences in a safe, informative and welcoming environment can help relieve stress, provide practical solutions and offer hope. With the help of a $4,000 grant from the Ocean City Home Charitable Foundation, Gilda’s Club South Jersey will continue to offer support groups that benefit families as a whole unit. 
“We understand that when one person is fighting cancer, the entire family is actually fighting cancer,” said Jean Jacobson, President of the Ocean City Home Charitable Foundation. “From a child watching a parent undergo treatment to an adult who is singlehandedly managing a household while worrying about a spouse, all of a patient’s loved ones feel the impact of a cancer diagnosis. We’re pleased to help Gilda’s Club South Jersey support more than 3,000 adults and children in our community who are affected by cancer.”
Lauren Crenshaw, Special Projects Director for Gilda’s Club South Jersey, expressed appreciation on behalf of the nonprofit organization, which serves residents of Atlantic and Cape May Counties, as well as six other Southern New Jersey counties. “Gilda’s Club recognizes Ocean City Home Bank as a champion of philanthropy in our community,” said Crenshaw. “The Foundation has helped us provide free support for families impacted by cancer for almost a decade.”
The grant awarded to Gilda’s Club South Jersey was one of 20 grants presented to area nonprofit organizations at the Ocean City Home Charitable Foundation’s awards reception in July 2016. The Foundation presented a total of $60,000 in grants at the reception, bringing the organization’s cumulative donation total to more than $1,173,100 since 2005.
