OCPD Partners With Worcester G.O.L.D. For Holiday Drive

OCEAN CITY – The Ocean City Police Department is collecting new, unwrapped toys for this year’s holiday season to benefit Worcester G.O.L.D., a non-profit organization that provides financial support to county citizens.

In previous decades, the department’s prior benefactor, the Santa House, has helped 20,244 children, 8,275 families and 779 elderly citizens with contributions gathered from the community since its start in the 1990s.

But with no permanent location to run the program, Santa House officials said they would suspend operations for the 2016 season to find a suitable building that will best serve the needs of the community.

Each year, collected toys, food and clothing are divided by family and given to distribution centers at the Ocean City Police Department, Showell Fire Department, Snow Hill Lions Club and the Pocomoke Fair Grounds.
