Giving Back

One benefit individuals can experience through volunteer work is creating new friendships through their own service. Not only is volunteering in Panama City Beach a great way to give back to the community where you found recovery, it can also help make a positive, personal impact and create lasting memories. 

One such giving back opportunity available in the area is through the Friends of St. Helen Park.
This organization is a citizens support organization dedicated to preserving, maintaining, and improving the St. Helen park. Volunteer projects, community events and fundraising are all great ways to get involved. This opportunity provides a fun way to connect with nature and help protect a beautiful environment.

Another opportunity to lend a hand is through the Autism Surfs PCB organization. This group looks to help kids with autism connect with peers and bring out different abilities through water. As a volunteer, you can help check in participants, work in water and food distribution, hop on the beach monitoring team and plenty more.

These are just two of so many opportunities for people visiting or living in the area to make a difference. Get more information on volunteer organizations in the PCB area through the city’s volunteer information page.

Committing to total health and wellness

A holistic recovery means placing focus around healing the mind, spirit and body. One way to do this is through committing to your own physical and mental fitness. Yoga is one opportunity you have to practice this, and you can find some free yoga meet ups through the local PC Yoga page.

There is also a great public parks and recreation program in the Panama City Beach area. Swimming, Water Aerobics and Aqua Zumba are all available at affordable rates through the public pools that are part of the parks department.
