The Northwest Florida State College Student Government Association on May 4 presented a donation of $336.71 to Panhandle Warrior Partnership, an organization that supports and assists local veterans.
SGA members collected the money with a pie-in-the-face fundraiser during the college’s Spring Fling celebration in March. Dan Verda, executive director of PWP, thanked the SGA for the donation.
“It’s going to a good cause — it’s to help people. We take care of our own folks. On their behalf I thank you,” Verda told the SGA members, adding, “We especially appreciate those who took a pie in the face for us.”
