Salvation Army and Hancock Bank Employees Sort Christmas Gifts for Those in Need

PANAMA CITY, Fla. - 'Tis the season for giving back. On Tuesday the Salvation Amry had some help from employees at Hancock and Whitney bank who helped sort and prep gift donations at the Salvation Army warehouse. The gifts came from all over in the past few weeks and will be distributed to those in need on December 19th. Over a thousand families in multiple area countys have applied for Christmas assistance with the Salvation Army and will receive the toys or food in time for Christmas.  

"They are sorted, tagged, and prepared so that whenever families come to pick them up they are ready to go," said Salvation Army Director major Otis Childs. 

"To whom much is given, much is required, and we feel like that's really part of our culture and we want to give back to our community and help where we can," said market president at Hancock Bank Ben Lee.
