Whether you come to Ocean Casino Resort and end up hitting the jackpot or playing it safe, you somehow end up with one ticket slips with some change on them. Luckily, the Ocean Cares program ensures that you have a place to deposit the change slips as charitable contributions to the local community.
Ocean Cares donation boxes called “Change for Change” are installed throughout the casino floor. This is Ocean’s initiative to collect donations from players who would like their small change ticket slips to go to charity. The boxes can be found next to ticket redemption machines and Cashier cages at the resort.
As an organization, Ocean Cares continues to participate in charitable giving and philanthropic efforts, both from a community and national standpoint. Contributions are made in the areas of Community, Health & Human Services, Culture, Education, and Seniors, among others. In 2021, our guests have donated about $10,000 in change slips already. Four very worthy organizations in the community will be benefiting from our patrons’ generosity
