Child Service Center

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

The Child Service Center program provides clothing and hygiene items to more than 1,200 Bay County students each year. 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 online order form, which helps us track numbers for grant purposes.

We provide the following in a clothing request:

  • Two tops and two bottoms
