Beach Volunteer Opportunities
Live in or around the Ocean City area? If you are willing to lend us a hand and join our most dedicated community of volunteers, check out the volunteer opportunities available in Ocean City this month.
Greeters: Welcome the families on their first day of respite. Greeters meet the visiting families on their first day, answer questions about their respite, give them the keys, and show them to their respite home.
Deep Cleaners: Create a safe and welcoming place for families to stay at The House By The Sea and The House By The Bay by joining our deep cleaning team. This is an “as needed” opportunity.
Regular Cleaning Crews: Keep the six units at the Children’s House ByThe Sea spotless between family visits by coming in after scheduled checkouts to make the condos sparkle.
Events: We need your help with maintenance and fundraising for several annual Ocean City events - including the Seacrets Beach Bash and Annual Gala By the Sea - held throughout the year.
Create an Oasis By the Sea: Are you an early bird? Looking for a simple way to make a difference in the lives of families with critically ill children? We're searching for Ocean City residents or summer visitors to set up and take down umbrellas so families can enjoy relaxing moments at the beach as if they were staying at a their own private beach residence.
Beach Items: The children and families who visit our oceanfront properties love to play with buckets, shovels, and relax in beach chairs. We're in constant need of new beach items to replace those that are lost or broken during play.
2012 Wish List Drives are going on now!
We are looking for volunteers to organize and host wish list drives for all of our facilities. The wish lists are specific to each facility and include household items, food, toys, cleaning supplies, hygiene products and other things that families need while staying in the hospital and respite houses. This is a great opportunity for a school, community, or social group to help with!
Please contact Wayne Littleton, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you would like to participate in the Wish List Drive or to find out about other volunteer opportunities!
