When it comes to reaching out to the community and being there to help people in our area, nobody does it better than the great people we've met from the OceanFirst Foundation.

We get regular visits on the morning show from Kathy Durante, Executive Director of The OceanFirst Foundation and each time, she explains yet another way the foundation is extending a hand of help to our community.

Whether it's though grants, scholarships, collaborations with local groups or many other ways, The OceanFirst Foundation is tirelessly working on ways to make a difference in Monmouth and Ocean Counties. The foundation's priorities include health and wellness, housing, quality of life, and youth development and education.
