Every year, the Caine Woods Community Association officers and directors choose a local charity that will receive the proceeds from our September special event and from raffles held at other association events. Last year’s donation to Friends of Possibilities was $4,400.
At its Feb. 26 meeting, the officers and board selected two local organizations. The Josh and Tommy Memorial Scholarship Program is an annual scholarship award that provides financial assistance to graduates of the OC Police Department Seasonal Police Academy for educational purposes. This merit-based competition focuses on rewarding goal-oriented individuals with a public safety career goal and is a one-time award of at least $500 annually.
OCPD PFC Joshua Dale Adickes and Officer Thomas James Geoghegan Jr. were dedicated and courageous both on and off duty. Josh and Tommy died together while off duty in a tragic plane crash on June 30, 2013, in Ocean City. The program honors the two with a scholarship to help other officers pursue their college careers.
St. Peter’s Lutheran Church offers its Open Door Feeding Ministry every Wednesday with a free lunch at the church located at 10301 Coastal Highway. Along with soups, sandwiches, desserts and beverages, the ministry also offers bags of groceries, clothing, fellowship and social services to the physically and spiritually hungry of the world. We look forward to working with these two groups and hope to have a successful fund-raising effort this year!
