The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is the nation’s leading organization bringing together people across communities and backgrounds to understand and prevent suicide, and to help heal the pain it causes. Individuals, families, and communities who have been personally touched by suicide are the moving force behind everything we do.

The Jesse Klump Memorial Fund, Inc. supports the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention in its mission to end the tragedy of youth suicide and its consequences, to offer a safe place of healing and compassion for survivors of suicide loss, and to provide financial aid to a Snow Hill High School Senior who has demonstrated a strong commitment to making the world a better place.

*Please note that this page is not monitored 24-7 and is not a crisis line. We are unable to provide direct services and encourage you to call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255) or text line (741-741) or call 911 in crisis.

Again, it’s all about imagination & being creative…  This Photo Contest is open to all, and is up to you if you’d like to be creative with it…  Share your Painting, Photoshop it, have fun with it…

I have put together a pretty cool, if I do say so myself, 2017 Ocean City Calendar.  Included in the Calendar are the dates for all the major events happening throughout 2017 that I could get verified.  And, yes, getting events verified in Ocean City MD is a challenge as for some reason, it baffles me that we do not have a plan to keep events consistent.  So, I will do the best I can and for updates simply sign up for my weekly newsletter…  Click Here!

Now, the best part of this year’s 2017 Ocean City Calendar is the COUPONS on each page, your passport to more saving in Ocean City MD!
