Donations Down for Rescue Mission

Panama City – The Panama City Rescue Mission is struggling with donations. It says it is because of all the negative attention it’s gotten lately.

Reverend Billy Fox says it’s quarter that runs from October to December usually makes up for about 60% of it’s donations, but this year it is down 15% from last year. He says this is the first time donations have dropped and that it has always been stead or a slight improvement.  Fox thinks  are donating less with all the attention of the Panama City’s Homeless Task Force and the Bethel Village Expansion.

“I really do suspect that people are holding back some because they’re not sure what the reality of panama city rescue mission is because there has been a lot of negativity. There has been a lot of challenging the good work we do down here,” Fox said.
