As recovery continues from the havoc wreaked by Hurricane Michael last week, both staff and peers have pitched in to clean up the Perry Wellness Center campus, provide hot food to those without power, and provide emotional support for each other.
One way in which peers have joined the effort is through volunteering their time to clean up debris and bring the campus back to its usual attractive appearance.
“I thank God each day for sparing us with Hurrian Michael,” PWC founder and CEO Stuart Perry says fervently. “Pam and I had severe damage at our house, but Perry Wellness Center and our clients are safe. We are pleased with the volunteer cleanup by citizens and peers in our city.” He hails the spirit of community involvement which followed the natural disaster.
