PANAMA CITY– The Panama City Rescue Mission received a big gift today. Bay District School’s food service company dropped off a hefty load of canned goods.

Chartwells partnered with local schools to gather the cans during a food drive.

Not only will these cans serve hundreds of needy families, but the drive also encourages our children to recognize the need. Students wrote messages on the boxes promoting, “Ending World Hunger.”

Staff members from the Mission sorted the cans, getting them ready to put back on their shelves.

The Mission received 1,000 cans from Thursday’s donation, which rescue Mission staff says will help as they approach the holidays.

“It comes at a time as you know our food pantries are very low, we’ve had a very busy summer and our food services are increasing by the day some days we are serving over 300 meals and this really comes at an important time to our ministry,” said Panama City Rescue Mission Director of Development Amanda Bawn.

If you’d like to donate to the Mission, you can drop off canned goods at their main office on 609 Allen Avenue in Panama City.
