Gonzalez UMC Provides Christmas Toys In Area Hit Hard By Hurricane Michael

December 17, 2018

A North Escambia church led the charge to make Christmas special for dozens of children impacted by Hurricane Michael.

“The young adult RISK group at Gonzalez United Methodist Church had a burden for the children that had been effected by hurricane Michael. So they teamed up with Lynn Haven Elementary to allow the parents to come and get toys for their children to have Christmas,” said Tammie Penegar.

The event was no small undertaking. There were many toy drives and collections boxes, along with multiple sponsors and volunteers, that made the toy distribution possible.

In addition to Gonzalez Methodist Church, sponsors were Molino Park Elementary School, Ransom Middle School, Gulf Breeze Hospital, Pine Meadow Veterinary Clinic, Tate High School Band, Palm Beach Tan, Nails Envy, The Floor Store, Sew Haven, Miles Antique Mall, Cross Metropolitan Community Church, Bad Boys Rod and Customer car clubs, Step 2 Company Eastern Star, and Lifeway Christian Bookstore.
