Hancock Bank Gives Back to Flood Victims

By  | 

Hancock Bank officials presented a $2,500 check Wednesday afternoon to Walton County Habitat for Humanity officials.

The money will go to habitat's "Restore" facility, which was heavily damaged.

The organization had just poured thousands of dollars into renovating the building located in South Walton, when it got flooded.

Habitat had to postpone the grand opening, which was supposed to happen earlier this month.

Hancock Bank officials also presented checks to three other organizations in Okaloosa, Escambia and Santa Rosa counties money.

"I am overwhelmed by the generosity of the community and help us continue to serve the community of Walton County, and affordable housing. We are going to us these funds to wrap up the renovations of our restore, and hopefully open June 3rd,” said Teresa Imdieke, Executive Director for the Walton County Habitat for Humanity.

Habitat for Humanity also received a check for more than $9,000 from the St. Joe Company foundation earlier this week.
