CareerSource Gulf Coast Hosts Second Food Distribution with The Rotary Club of Panama City Beach & Saint Dominic Catholic Church

August 24, 2020



CareerSource Gulf Coast partnered with The Rotary Club of Panama City Beach and Saint Dominic Catholic Church again on Tuesday, August 18, to provide food to over 345 families in Bay County.  


“The Rotary Club of Panama City Beach was thrilled to be a part of such a well-organized food distribution,” said Lorraine Odom, President of the Rotary Club of Panama City Beach. “Our motto is ‘Service Above Self’, and I couldn’t think of a better example of this than our community of volunteers helping the community at large, as we were able to do at this event.”


The distribution, sponsored by CareerSource Gulf Coast, the Rotary Club of Panama City Beach, and Saint Dominic Catholic Church, was held in the parking lot of the recently closed Panama City Mall. Between these three organizations, and volunteers from 11 other local businesses and non-profits, over 35 individuals came together to distribute 20,000 pounds of food to Bay County people in need. Additionally, Gotta-Go Portable Toilets donated a portable toilet for event volunteers.  


“The St. Dominic Catholic Church Parish Leadership Team, led by our Pastor, Fr. Michael Nixon, was honored to serve alongside CareerSource Gulf Coast (and additional organizations and volunteers) to feed our brothers and sisters in most need in the Panama City area,” said Saint Dominic Parish Manager Mark Gutcher. 


Of the mobile food distributions recently hosted by CareerSource Gulf Coast and partners, this event had the largest community turnout. The word spread quickly throughout the community, thanks to efforts by event partners, volunteers, and local media.


“Bay County is a strong, resilient community, “said Aimee Bright, event volunteer on behalf of Alignment Bay County and the Tyndall Spouses Club. “It was inspiring to see so many organizations and businesses come together to help one another.”
