Anchorage Children’s Home receives large gift

BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WMBB) – Anchorage Children’s Home has received a $20,000 gift from the Carillon Beach Chapel.

The money will help renovate the McKelvey home located on Panama City Beach. The Mcelvey Home supports Anchorage’s Stop Now & Plan, or SNAP program. SNAP helps parents and aggressive, anti-social 6-to-11-year-olds manage their child’s emotions.

“It’s a 13-week program and it’s gender sensitive. So we have boys’ groups and girls’ groups. We work specifically with the kids in one area, and then we work with the parents in another area so that they can have different tools to effectively communicate better, to build healthier relationships. We also provide child care for any siblings that are not involved in the therapy and also dinner,” Anchorage Children’s Home Development Director Brooke Bullard said.

Bullard said a good portion of the donation will go to replace the flooring at McKelvey house which has become a safety issue.
