Gulf Power Employees Lend a Big Hand

Habitat for Humanity teamed up with Gulf Power employees Saturday to build a home on Harmon Avenue in Panama City. That's behind Bay High School.

The Gulf Power workers call themselves the "transformers" because they raise the standard of living and improve the quality of life in the area by encouraging community involvement among Gulf Power employees, retirees and their families.

The Gulf Power transformers are donating $10,000 to Habitat for Humanity.

Since coming to Bay County, Habitat for Humanity has built homes for 40 families and currently has three more under construction.
