The Ocean City Education Foundation (OCEF) purchased and donated more than 300 PPE lanyards for students and teachers this week at the Ocean City Primary School.
The lanyards, which are red with white lettering to match Ocean City’s school colors, break away for safety purposes and have “I ❤️OCPS” written on them.
“Once the OCEF board heard of the need, we reached out to the school to see how we could help,” said OCEF President Jennifer Shirk. “In this unprecedented time, we are happy to make things a little easier for the students and teachers in any way we can.”
The Primary School felt the lanyards would be beneficial for the students to help keep protective masks secure during their school day with less likelihood of them falling on the ground or getting lost. Lanyards essentially are cords or straps worn around the neck.
The Ocean City Education Foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) community service organization. This school year, OCEF will focus on funding additional outdoor Wellness Centers in all three schools in the Ocean City district and is always looking for support monetarily or through volunteering.
