News

ST. ANDREWS, Fla. (WKRG) — There are still many people in the Panama City area without power and a boil water notice is still in effect. The community is coming together to help each other out.

A supply “drive-thru” is set up at St. Andrew Baptist Church. The church has been providing supplies since Sunday, but now they’ve teamed up with the Red Cross and volunteers from Oklahoma to prepare and deliver thousands of meals.

“Our group is going to various neighborhoods and using a megaphone to say, ‘Hey we’ve got some hot food,'” said Kit Williamson.

If you’re looking to pitch in, donations are always welcome. A lot of food and water have been coming in, but the most needed items at this time are cleaning supplies, toilet paper & diapers.

Hundreds of people have been coming through St. Andrew where dozens of volunteers are lending a helping hand. 

“We’re delighted for the privilege,” said Pastor Mike Claunch. “It’s what the Lord calls us to do to be able to serve others. As Jesus was a servant, that’s what we want to be.”
