going stir-crazy while you are sitting “safer at home”?

Here is a challenge for you.  There are face mask patterns all over the place and we need masks in our Gulf County Community for the front line workers who are trying to keep us fed, like at the Pig, Rich’s IGA  and convenience stores, first responders, delivery folks, volunteers who are getting food out to the elderly, the children, and needy, etc.  They are serving us while we can have the luxury of staying home, being safe, and stopping the spread of this virus. 

How about sewing a few masks? CCA will have a closed plastic container at Gulf 2 Bay Construction offices at 1934 SR 30A (Simmons Bayou), across from the Shrimp Company,  under the side porch for you to drop off the new masks or you can mail them to 1934 SR 30 A, Port St. Joe, Fl 32456.   Don’t come visit, just drop off the masks.

We will make sure they are safely delivered to those serving us who need them throughout the County.  Bet you folks can send in 200 by next Friday!!

Have a safe and Blessed Easter.

Be safe, Be kind, Be patient.
