We Invite You to Help in Feeding Our Families

You’re Invited to Help Feed our Families through April 10, 2021.  Sunset Beach’s nonprofits; Committee to Honor America’s Veterans, Old Bridge Historical Society, Sunset Beach, NC Turtle Watch and Sunset Vision are teaming up to support local food pantries that are so critical to our community during this difficult time.  We often think of those in need during the holidays, but many of our families are financially insecure and in need of food year-round.  You can help by making a monetary donation from now until April 10, 2021 through DONATE NOW  or visit Sunset Vision’s Website

Donations will be given directly to Seaside United Methodist Church Food Pantry.  For questions, please email us at contact@sunsetvision.org.

If you would prefer, you can also mail a check made payable to:

Another Volunteer Opportunity in OR Post Tornado

Received via Sea Trail resident, Tony Imondi and the Knights of Columbus:

Volunteers are needed to go onto vacant wooded lots (no houses) with chain saws to cut down pine trees that have been snapped in half into smaller logs.  Volunteers must bring their own chain saw and know how to use it.  Also another set of volunteers are needed to be able to take the logs that the chain saw volunteers cut up and drag the logs to the road. If you can bring a wheel barrel or some other device to make the process easier all the better.  This work started yesterday (Saturday) and volunteers are needed ASAP.  Volunteers need to wear boots and work gloves and old clothing since it is still wet and muddy there.  Please call and discuss details further if you are able to help:

President’s Message | 2-2-21 | Gift Cards & Fundraiser for Ocean Ridge

Dear Sea Trail Homeowners,

Sea Trail was very lucky last Monday evening when we were spared any damage from the tornado that created devastation for our neighbors in Ocean Ridge Plantation community. I have heard many people asking what can we do to help our neighbors. Here are two ways that we can support our neighbors and donate to the relief efforts for Ocean Ridge residents who are suffering from the effects of the tornado:

SEA TRAIL GARDEN CLUB GIFT CARDS
The Sea Trail Garden Club is helping those impacted by the tornado by collecting gift cards. Because of the wide variety of items needed, Walmart cards would help the most, but any gift card or donation, would be appreciated. We are coordinating with Tammy Blanton of the Beach Happy Market in Ocean Isle Beach who has been working with the Manager of Ocean Ridge Plantation’s Master Association.

Gift cards can be dropped off or mailed to:
Kim Urban
206 Planters Ridge Drive
Sunset Beach, NC 28468

OCEAN RIDGE PLANTATION TORNADO RELIEF FUND
Ocean Ridge Plantation Master Association (ORMA) is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Ocean Ridge Charities Association Inc. This fundraiser will be administered by the ORMA Board of Directors to assist with relief for impacted residents of the community and it has been established at the request of concerned residents who want to offer assistance for recovery. Please click on the RED button below and it will take you to the Go Fund Me page.

Ocean Ridge Plantation Tornado Relief Fund

Please keep Ocean Ridge Plantation community and all of those impacted by this terrible storm in your thoughts and prayers.

Sincerely,
Roz Dahlen, STMA President
