Please join us and help spread some joy!  

Our next Hospice Dolls meeting is Wednesday June 12th from 1:00-3:00 in the Member Lounge.


We work together to cut out the dolls and the clothes.  We sew and stuff these adorable figures.  Wonderful faces are drawn on, bringing them to life.  Each doll is dressed in a shirt and shorts and is then given custom yarn hair, further enhancing their personality.  

These dolls are delivered to Lower Cape Fear LifeCare where they are so appreciated by patients and families.

All are welcome to join the fun.  No sewing skills required.  And many tasks can be done at home if the meeting times are not convenient.

All materials are provided.  Though donations of fabric, pillow stuffing, glue sticks, etc are always welcome.

ORCA ‘In the News’

Several organizations that have benefited recently from Ocean Ridge Charities Association’s fund raising efforts published press releases to thank our forever generous community.


WARM NC (Wilmington Area Rebuilding Ministry) received money from our Annual Appeal to help them provide safety equipment in their 2024 builds.  They shared one of their success stories on Facebook…  “Sheila has lived in her home for 32 years, nearly half her life.  She is retired and has limited income.  As a single woman, she did her best to keep up with the maintenance of her home.  But after she pays her bills, prescriptions and medical visits, there is little money left for her to put toward repairs.  WARM NC did a number of repairs to help Sheila age safely in place, including installing 3 new grab bars in her bathroom and replacing all the smoke detectors in her bedrooms.  This is just one of the homeowners we were able to help with funds from ORCA.” said Beth Ann Scisco, Grants Coordinator for WARM NC.




Brunswick County Habitat for Humanity (BCHfH) received grant funding from several local organizations, including ORCA.  In an article published in the Brunswick Beacon, they announced:   Ocean Ridge Charities Association, Inc. (ORCA) donated a grant in the amount of $3,000 towards the purchase of fortified roofing materials.  “We are grateful for the continued community partnerships.  Without their support, our continued growth would not be possible.” said Kate Grinstead, Brunswick County Habitat for Humanity Development Manager.  Mary Perno and Amy Kelly are pictured presenting the check to Kate and her team.
