Thanks to your generosity, in 2021, we were able to provide 397 Bay County children with 3 wishes, new outfits and shoes. We have an amazing YouTube video covering a previous Santa party. “Children Left Behind Bundle of Hope.”
 
These children will likely not have Christmas without our gracious community. You can be such an important part of taking the burden off of financially struggling single parents when it matters the most. The finale is a visit for the children with Santa on December 17th, as our Elves fill the arms of their parent with their Santa bags.
 
As the Christmas Season approaches, do you wonder if there are children in our area who won’t get Christmas gifts? If this is you, please consider the CHILDREN LEFT BEHIND ANNUAL CHRISTMAS GIFTING PROGRAM!

These children will likely not have Christmas without our gracious community. You can be such an important part of taking the burden off of financially struggling single parents when it matters the most. The finale is a Christmas party for all of the children at Sisters of the Sea restaurant on Thomas Drive in Panama City Beach, where the children sip hot chocolate and enjoy candy canes as our elves fill their parent’s cars with their gifts.
