With Sincere Thanks from the Board of Directors of the Ocean Ridge Master Association.
The Ocean Ridge Master Association community was deeply affected by a disaster that impacted the community of Ocean Ridge Plantation late on Monday night 2/15/21 when a tornado left in its wake a number of fatalities, injured people and severely damaged or destroyed homes and property. 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.
The Board of Directors for the Association is working closely with the Brunswick County Emergency Services to coordinate damage assessment and to develop a plan for recovery and restoration. Teams of volunteers have been organized to support efforts related to property cleanup and obtain required equipment and resources, shelter coordination for the affected residents, food & water and security. Offers for community aid are also being managed in conjunction with the Sheriff's office. The official community spokesperson has issued the following statement: These are very difficult and sad times for our community, and the community needs time to assess personal situations, so that plans for moving forward in the best possible way can occur. We are asking for privacy about details of those impacted, but welcome the charitable nature of others, as there will be a good amount of need for our neighbors. No other details can be shared until the damage assessment has been made and the extent of loss has been determined more clearly.
Funds received via this initiative will be segregated and used exclusively to assist with recovery-related to impacts from the storm. The Association's management company has assigned accounting staff to manage receipts and disbursements which will be reported to the Board and Members in the Association financial report. All donations will be deposited into the Ocean Ridge Master Association's bank account by the association's designated management agent (CAMS) and funds will be issued to beneficiaries once the need has been fully defined and awards have been determined.
NOTE: In the immediate aftermath of the tornado, the Ocean Ridge Board of Directors requested assistance from CAMS (the community's Association Management agent) to set up and administer this initiative on behalf of the Homeowner Association. The Ocean Ridge Board of Directors controls all decisions relating to the funds received. They are compiling a damage assessment and will put together a plan that will describe how impacted residents may apply for assistance and how the funds will be distributed to maximize the impact of the donations from the many concerned neighbors, service providers and friends who are lending their support through this website. This plan will be shared with Association Members and donors once it has been finalized. The Association's Board President, Treasurer, Directors, volunteers and the ORMA Charitable committee Chair are coordinating closely with CAMS on all aspects related to recovery from this tragedy. The CAMS team includes the onsite General Manager, Community management team members, Regional and executive team and our entire corporate service team.
