PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WMBB)– On the Panama Metropolis Goal Thursday morning, many neighborhood volunteers confirmed up with a mission.
That is the thirteenth yr for Mission Generosity, and its predominant aim is to make sure that all college students at Southport and Lynn Haven elementary faculties have an opportunity at having an excellent Christmas, regardless of the circumstances.
This system works with college steerage counselors to determine college students in want, and neighborhood members and sponsors donate to the trigger enabling every little one to make an inventory and get some presents they deserve.
Stefanie Reeves, a volunteer and enterprise associate coordinator for Lynn Haven Elementary, stated that the necessity has grown this yr because of the pandemic.
“After the hurricane, there was quite a lot of outdoors assist and lots of people donated particularly folks not in Bay County or the counties round that weren’t as affected, however this yr the pandemic has affected all people,” Reeves stated.
The venture helped 75 children this yr. Often, the finances per little one is $60, however this yr, because of the neighborhood’s generosity and assist, they had been in a position to lengthen it to $125.
Reeves stated that she is particularly grateful to all of the sponsors and volunteers who made this potential.
