Child Service Center

In 1951, the Junior League of Panama City organized the Child Service Center (CSC) in an effort to provide clothing and hygiene items to underserved children of Bay County.

For school year 2017-2018, we fulfilled 1,110 orders for school-approved uniforms and other necessary items to children attending Bay District Schools. This valuable program provides for children who would otherwise not be allowed to attend school without the appropriate attire. These children are then able to attend school with confidence, focus on their education, gain self-esteem, and hopefully one day give back to their community

Our orders come from a guidance counselor, parent liaison, social worker, or other professional at the child's school who then completes an order form online, which helps us track numbers for grant purposes.
