Boat Donation Panama City Beach, Florida: Be a Life-Changer for Your Town’s Disadvantaged People

Panama City Beach is a resort town in Bay County, Florida. It’s a popular spring break destination for young people because of its beautiful beaches. It’s also near major cities and top tourist attractions.

However, not everyone in the town is living a great life. Of the town’s estimated population of 12,583 as of July 2019, 5.3% were classified as persons in poverty, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.  Among these individuals are men and women who are struggling to eke out a living, burdened by their disabilities, lack of education, skills, and experience, and other personal issues that prevent them from finding decent sources of income so they can support themselves and their families.

If you have an old boat that you want to dispose of, you can use this to help the disadvantaged people of Panama City Beach, Florida. By handing it over to us at Goodwill Car Donations, we will quickly relieve you of the financial difficulties that your old boat is causing you as a result of its need for costly repairs, maintenance, parts replacements, and storage.

When you turn it over to our Panama City Beach, Florida boat donation program, we will provide you with all the great benefits that we give to all our donors. At the same time, your donation will allow you to contribute to the growth and progress of your town since it will benefit your community’s disadvantaged people.

We will auction off your seacraft, with the proceeds going straight to the Goodwill organizations serving your area. These are IRS-approved 501(c)(3) nonprofits that cater to disadvantaged individuals. They use the funding they get from our donation program to help finance the services they provide to their beneficiaries. These services include:

  • Job training and placement
  • Job-link centers
  • Beyond jobs program
  • Career development and counseling
  • Family strengthening services
  • Youth services, including high school/high-tech, youth mentoring
  • School for students with developmental disabilities
  • Income-sensitive housing for senior citizens and people with disabilities
  • Vehicle assistance program

You’ll be helping provide all these services with your boat donation. Imagine what these services will do for the deserving people in your town and how their now productive lives will benefit your community.
