Ocean of Love is a non-profit, charitable 501 (c)(3) organization dedicated to helping Ocean County children with cancer and their families. Our purpose is to assist the children through their illness. We provide financial and emotional support so that they can experience the "normal" joys of childhood, knowing their lives are significant and meaningful to each and every one of us.
We provide financial support to help cover expenses like rent, utilities, and other essential household services.
We supply gas cards, parking, and toll reimbursement to help families have ease of mind when having to make frequent medical visits during treatment.
We ensure food insecurity never becomes an additional challenge by giving grocery gift cards and providing holiday food assistance.
We cover expected and unforeseen circumstances during a family's journey on treatment and after. We're there for every step, including life's special moments and hardships.
