From the Junior Museum in Panama City to Laguna Beach Christian Ministries and every where in between, our community is helping men, women and children cope in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Stranded evacuees can get gas vouchers, clothing, and lunch from Beach Care Services on Panama City Beach. They say they're just trying to cover what the Red Cross can't.
“Were still helping them, sending them to the Red Cross if they need shelter. But we're trying to help them wit their other needs. Many of them are finding that their debit cards don't work. So, they're strapped for cash. But we can at least try and help get them where they want to go."
Junior Museum of Bay County is doing what they can to help kids of evacuees with toys, free lunch and tour of the museum.
Lugana Beach Christian Retreat also opened their doors Thursday morning to help out those in need. The people stranded in Bay County say they couldn't be in a better place.
"Totally grateful, It's the greatest thing I can imagine right now. I can't be more thankful than I am right now."
The spirit of the Panhandle is truly a sprit of generosity. Beach Care Services will be serving breakfast for evacuees Friday for free starting at 8:30. They will also serve lunch.
