Ruth Waters, Greater Ocean City Chamber Foundation President is presented a $5,000 grant by Community Foundation President Erica Joseph to assist with hospitality industry employee safety training amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore recently awarded a $5,000 grant to the Greater Ocean City Chamber of Commerce Foundation to provide safety training for hospitality workers amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The “Back to Work Safely Guideline Training” workshop developed by Dupont Sustainable Solutions provides housekeeping, maintenance, front desk, reservations, kitchen, wait staff, attractions attendants and other professionals with free online training to protect themselves and patrons as businesses reopen.

So far 14 businesses have signed up for the training with more than 225 employees participating. The grant was funded through the Community Foundation’s Emergency Response Fund which has worked to aid nonprofits and communities in Somerset, Wicomico, and Worcester counties throughout the pandemic.
