The LH Bead Gallery in Downtown Panama City presented St. Andrew school at Oakland Terrace with a $6,000 check Tuesday.

But that's not the only school receiving a check. It's actually the eighth recipient, and certainly not the last.

The Bead Gallery has been selling $850Strong necklaces, key chains, and other jewelry items to raise more than $50,000, going back to local schools.

The principal of St. Andrew School says this money is something that will help the teachers greatly.

"It's quite fabulous because this money will go for continued hurricane relief to my employees. We will divide this money up amongst the employees and those who don't feel like need a share can return their shares back to it and so we're just so grateful," said Principal Janie Branstetter.

The Bead Gallery owner says they plan on giving the next $6,000 check to Callaway Elementary.

The owner is also working to get some big partners to help with the cause.
