“This is how we serve who we serve,” said NewFM Coalition organizer Valencia Gunder. “The people of North Florida need us. We always go up there to enjoy homecoming and have fun. We go up to Panama City for Spring Break. But there are underserved folks, working class individuals, children, babies, seniors all who need assistance. Their homes are gone, their businesses are gone. They need our help.”
