PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WMBB) — Save The Closet, a local non-profit created after Hurricane Michael’s devastating effects on the Panhandle, has been busy working with families impacted by more landfalling hurricanes this year.
Save The Closet Treasurer, Amanda Godsey, said the charity was founded by Katy Pinson.
“She started Save the Closet after Hurricane Michael because she saw the need for people to have donations with dignity instead of just being donated bags of clothes that may or not fit,” she said.
Godsey said the non-profit’s goal is to provide a comforting experience for disaster victims, a place where families can browse already organized by size clothes, in good condition, as if they were at a retail store.
This year they have had their work cut out for them. The season has been incredibly active with forming hurricanes; two storms, Hurricane Laura and Sally, making landfall along the Gulf Coast.
