Disaster Relief Donation
The College and WMBB are collecting donations in an effort to provide those affected by Hurricane Florence with the necessary resources to aid in the cleanup and recovery process. Some of the items needed include cleaning supplies, pet supplies and baby supplies. Donations can be dropped off at any GCSC campus including the Main Campus in Panama City, the Gulf/Franklin Campus in Port St. Joe, the North Bay Campus in Southport and the Tyndall Education Center on Tyndall Air Force Base. The College is also working with organizations in the community to provide additional collection sites, and they will be announced as the information becomes available.
In addition to collecting relief items, the GCSC Foundation is accepting monetary donations, which can be made online by visiting the GCSC Foundation's website (select the designation as “Hurricane Relief”). Checks and money orders will also be accepted (payable to GCSC Foundation; memo hurricane relief).
