At Panama City Beach, There’s Always More to Give!
We love our Bay County for many reasons; the soft, white sand, crystal clear waters, and the people in our community just start off the list. In this season of giving, one of the many things Panama City Beach is proud of is working together as a community to make an impact and share the joy with others.

As always, Panama City Beach invites you to the toy drive that will be benefiting the Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation. Help brighten up the holiday season for thousands of boys and girls by coming down and supporting the Stuff The Bus 4.0 Toy Drive! The warmth of your toy donation will not only brighten up one child’s holiday, but his or her family’s day as well. Last year Stuff The Bus had a huge goal of reaching 7,500 in donated toys and did not disappoint. This year the bar is set even higher. The goal is to collect 10,000 toys to exceed last year’s donation of 8,910 toys. Lets help by making this happen!
As a bonus, Stuff The Bus will be hosting events such as live performances by Collide, Collision, and Second Hand Grace, which will start nightly at 6:00 p.m. The nightly entertainment is open to the public and although you’re not required to bring a toy to enjoy the show, you should. For each toy you bring, you will be given a chance to win one of the daily prizes. Secondly you will receive a free print of your selfie with Santa (this can be a group of friend or single).
Traditionally, just as the past three years, Skip Bondur will be living on the top of the bus for the duration of the event and will only come down when the goal of 10,000 toys is met! There will be someone on the ground to accept donations throughout the day and night, which makes a total of 10 full days to go by and drop off a toy! This also means we need to collect 1,000 toys per day to make our goal! Lets make this happen!
Donations are welcomed December 6–16. Drop-off location is at 512 W. 23rd Street in Panama City. For more information and hours, please call (850) 358-9152.
