GREATER TOMS RIVER AREA – As part of the ongoing launch of the Ocean Signal, a new online and biweekly print and digital news magazine arriving this February, it was announced that the combined photo archives of the Riverside Signal newspaper, JTOWN and Toms River magazines will be available for print and merchandise sales and a portion of proceeds donated to benefit non-profit organizations across the mid-Ocean County mainland and barrier island areas.
The archive, which includes over 100,000 photographs of places, people, events and more from the region taken over the past half-decade by these combined prior publications of what is now the Ocean Signal, will be selected, edited for quality and placed online in the coming weeks and months to its own website at photos.oceancountysignal.com
The public is invited and encouraged to view, share and purchase these contemporary classic images for homes, friends, family members and offices to directly aid such local organizations as civic clubs, library trustee groups, food pantries, schools and more. Separated from these will be local sports and sailing photos that will directly benefit the leagues, schools and clubs associated.
Photographs from individual municipalities will go to aid entities in those towns, including:
Toms River – Friends of the Toms River Library
Beachwood – Friends of the Beachwood Library
Island Heights – Friends of the Island Heights Library
Ocean Gate – Ocean Gate Civic Club
Pine Beach – Pine Beach Chapel Food Pantry
South Toms River – South Toms River Optimist Club
Seaside Heights – Hugh J. Boyd Elementary School
Seaside Park – Funtown Peers: Friends of Seaside Park
Jackson – James Volpe Foundation
Brick – Friends of the Brick Library
