BJ’s Wholesale Club, in partnership with the Ocean Pines Association, donated $540 to the Worcester County Veterans Memorial at Ocean Pines as a part of its fall 2015 membership offer. BJ’s donated $5 of each membership fee paid as a part of the promotion to the foundation in addition to offering special benefits for new and renewing members.
Marie Gilmore, president of the Worcester County Veterans Memorial Foundation, was presented a check by Ocean Pines Association Department of Marketing and Public Relations representative Julie Malinowski on Jan. 19.
Area residents who missed the fall BJ’s promotion will have the opportunity to participate in the next promotion, which will occur in April. LtoR:  Julie Malinowski and Marie Gilmore.
