Ocean’s Edge donates to daniel

The residents and staff at Ocean’s Edge, a coastal community located in south Jacksonville Beach, have gathered together to provide gifts for youth in need this holiday season. The community is sponsoring holiday gifts for five young adults through daniel, a nonprofit organization whose sole focus is to support and provide for troubled youth and their families, all of which are in their late teens and aging out of the foster care system.

“The money raised by the residents of Ocean’s Edge will be used to purchase gifts for five deserving young adults starting the next stage of life,” said Holly Rasmussen, sales and marketing vice president for Condo Capital Solutions LLC, the owner of Ocean’s Edge. “In support of this very important cause, Condo Capital Solutions will match the resident donations 100%, making it possible for Ocean’s Edge to support as many as 10 young adults.  We are truly excited to give to an organization like daniel that provides such a valuable resource to the Northeast Florida community.”

daniel is a nonprofit organization that has met the physical and emotional needs of children for more than 100 years. It is considered Florida’s oldest child-serving agency. Originally founded as an orphanage, and later named after James Jaquelin Daniel, daniel has evolved into a multi-service agency that assists troubled youth and their families.

“Our residents wanted to give back to a common cause during the holidays,” said Vikki Robbins, owner of Pace Builder Services, which markets the beachside community. “The young adults we are sponsoring are transitioning from foster care into their first independent living situations, often with few possessions. We encourage anyone interested in supporting the needs of children, families and young adults in Northeast Florida to support daniel throughout the year.”

Ocean’s Edge is located at 107 25th Ave. South in Jacksonville Beach. More information about daniel is available at www.danielkids.org.
