Beach Service Group Gets a Big Boost

Hurricane Ivan focused many of us on charity and how it truly starts at home.

Now, the staff from Pineapple Willy's at Panama City Beach presented a big check to Beach Care Services. The check, which represents one day receipts from a fundraiser held last month, was for more than $23,000.

Beach Care Services is a not for profit organization staffed by volunteers. They help beaches area needy find food, shelter and clothing.

They also help families down on their luck with utilities and transportation.

Bill Buskell, owner of Pineapple Willies has long been a supporter of Beach Care Services, which last year helped over 1,000 people on Panama City Beach.
