As most people know, since Hurricane Michael, Bay county has experienced a severe housing crisis. Bay District Schools estimates that there are still 1000’s of students who are living in temporary and/or substandard housing. Many of these students do not have many of the personal items most people take for granted. On Tuesday April 23, the Emerald Coast UGA Club will help Simply Self Esteem prepare backpacks filled with personal items that will be distributed to local students who have been displaced from their permanent homes. Our goal will be to prepare 200 bags. In addition to stuffing bags, we will also accept donations of personal items such as soaps, deodorant, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc. The highest need is for deodorant. Dawgs can participate by donating or joining us at Fishale on April 23. To donate, please contact Bill Poteet through email firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text 850-624-9022.
