What does Oceanside Community Service do?
OCS was organized in 1949 to act as a coordinating agency and clearinghouse for the needy and homebound of Oceanside. Over the years, and through the efforts of many dedicated volunteers, the following tasks have been undertaken:
∙ Periodically visiting the aged, homebound and those in need
to determine their needs.
∙ Maintaining an up-to-date list of families in need of clothing,
medical assistance, food or fuel, as well as supplying same or
locating an agency to do so.
∙ Supplying food to the pantry at St. Anthony’s & St. Christopher's.
∙ Securing medical equipment and assistance, as well as
special transportation for those in need of medical treatment.
∙ Directing families and individuals to proper agencies
for legal and family counseling
∙ Sponsoring Holiday programs (Easter, Passover,
Thanksgiving, Chanukah and Christmas.)
∙ Acting as liaison to many County agencies.
∙ Publishing and distributing an updated Community
Organization Directory on a yearly basis.
OCS strives to be the liaison between you and those in need in the community. Your continued support, contributions and active participation are needed to help us achieve our goals.
If you have any questions, or would like to volunteer or send a contribution, please call OCS President, Bob Transom
