PAOCE Supports Hurricane Michael Relief

At the annual meeting on January 16, 2019, our PAOCE membership presented a donation to the United Way of Northwest Florida’s Hurricane Michael Relief and Disaster Fund. Not only were our citizens and communities deeply affected, many of our members experienced heavy losses as well. 100% of all donations will be applied to LOCAL relief efforts in the Northwest Florida area.
