We are trying to raise money to help St. Dominic Catholic Church (as seen on CNN) in Panama City, Florida, after the destruction from Hurricane Michael on October 10, 2018.
Every structure on the church grounds is either in ruins or is badly damaged. The parish hall and bookstore were completely leveled. The church building has roof damage, stained glass everywhere, and water damage throughout the sanctuary. The apartment buildings and church office, which was recently renovated, have significant interior and exterior damage. The rectory has a damaged roof, collapsed ceilings, and water damage.
There is a need for supplies. If you have supply donations, please reach out and I can connect you where to donate.
***The purpose of this site is to raise money for St. Dominic's recovery during the weeks and months ahead.
The Robinsons (Noland and Jenna) and the Cavalieres (John and Holley) are managing this page. Holley and Jenna grew up in the Panama City area and attended St. Dominic growing up.
We’ve been in contact with Fr. Luke Farabaugh, who is one of our good friends. We attended Florida State University together. Fr. Luke has indicated that there is a great financial need as the church focuses on helping the community recover and begins rebuilding, which is why we have started this campaign. ALL funds will be sent directly to Fr. Luke Farabaugh and Fr. Mike Nixon at St. Dominic Catholic Church.
Fr. Luke was on CNN on October 11 at 6PM CST. You can view his whole interview here: https://www.cnn.com/videos/weather/2018/10/11/hurricane-michael-florida-church-destroyed-luke-farabaugh-bts-ebof-vpx.cnn/video/playlists/hurricane-michael/
