PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Adjusting to life mostly indoors will be a challenge for many, but for some vulnerable populations it's not something they have the ability to do. That's why the Panama City Rescue Mission plans to continue serving the homeless community. The organization serves an evening meal every day that they've had to turn into a to-go service, but not just the homeless are turning out.

The organization has seen roughly double the number of people turning out for meals, and that number likely isn't going down soon. Despite the challenges faced, President and CEO Stephen Fett is remaining optimistic.

"I just pray and hope that everybody can stay calm through this. We will get over it, and we will together be able to rebuild our area in ways that are gonna be amazing."
