The goal of the 4-H Working Soldiers Sweetfield Youth was to serve 200 hot meals and give away nonperishable items including food, clothing, dishes, pots and pans, water and personal hygiene items to storm victims in Panama City.
“Together we can do so much, alone we can do so little,” say Dr. Dawanda Skipworth. “We appreciate you! With substantial support of people like you, we were able to reach our goal of serving 200 hot meals and the nonperishable items including 150 Walmart gift cards to the storm victims of Panama City, Fla. Your kindness will not be forgotten. Donors like you helped us complete our
