Remembering the Children of Port St. Joe, FL at Christmastime


Last month, a group of locals were a part of delivering hurricane relief donations to the Panhandle of Florida, helping hurricane victims get some much-needed essentials and hygiene items. One pleasant surprise for the children was the inclusion of more than 300 Halloween treat bags, which were very happily received, as trick-or-treating and Halloween festivities had all been cancelled. Seeing the smiles on those faces has inspired those same locals again for the upcoming Christmas holiday. They will be transporting toys up to Port St. Joe a few weeks before Christmas to make sure the children there receive them in plenty of time.
