Bands of 30A raised almost $50,000 for Hurricane Michael Relief
We did extensive research and communicated with area school districts to directly provide for displaced students affected by Hurricane Michael.
We delivered 800 backpacks and $10,000 worth of school supplies to The Panhandle Area Educational Consortium (PAEC.) They will deliver them to schools in these counties -Jackson, Washington, Holmes, Franklin, Calhoun, Gadsden, Gulf, and Liberty.
A check for $15,000 was presented to the Florida Learns Foundation to aid in purchasing clothing items for the children.
The Bay High School Million Dollar Band had great loss to their program due to storm damage. A check for $10,000 was given to the band to replace instruments, uniforms, equipment, etc. We enjoyed speaking with Principal Billy May, Ginger Littleton of the Bay County School Board, Chloe the drum major, Jake the band captain, Nick the band director. They have offered to perform at a future Bands of 30A concert and we can not wait to have them!
A $5000 check was presented to Bay Elementary in Walton County to help manage the influx of new students enrolled because of Hurricane Michael.
The rest of the funds were used to ensure that Santa visited these children at Christmas. Even though their chimneys and roofs might have been gone their parents were able to "shop" through hundreds of brand new toys and pick out just the right gifts. Batteries, wrapping paper and even bows were provided.
Thank you to everyone who has made all of this possible. We can not say it enough what a blessing you have been.
