'Klothes for Kids' has kicked off and the mission is off to a great start.
Reverend Billy Fox of the mission say just this morning he recieved hundreds of pieces of clothing when volunteers posted up at the Panama City Mall infront of Linens N Things Friday morning.
And with a little help from 92.5's radio host Dr. Shane and Newschannel 7's Tom Lewis, the group collected about $2,600 dollars Firday morning. That's more than $1,300 Fox had projected. And more than $1,600 than last year.
