PANAMA CITY, Fla. – Even though it’s been over half a year since Hurricane Michael, there are still those who are struggling for the bare essentials.
That’s why the congregation of Mount Zion A.M.E. Church held a community giveaway Saturday.
They gave out mattresses, clothes, and other necessities while also handing out hot meals.
Pancare was there as well providing free blood pressure and blood glucose readings due to the number of people that have been unable to see a physician since the storm.
Pastor Pamela T. Andrews says this is just one way for them to give back, “Let Panama City know that God has not forgotten us, we’re gonna be alright. We’re neighbors helping neighbors. If we ever had the opportunity to be strong it’s now. So let’s help each other, stop complaining and reach out and help a friend up.”
Mount Zion currently has the blueprints for their new church building and they’re anticipating construction to begin next month.
