Evenings in Old Seville Square

Posted on: November 18th, 2014 by Candy

Look for the Swingin’ Dick Tracys on stage from 6p – 8p this Thursday at Seville Square.  Free show but it is a Manna food raiser.

Please plan to bring a non-perishable food item as your “cost of admission” for this concert to help those around us in need during the Thanksgiving season

Their concert this summer got rained out and so many of you came up asking if they would be rescheduled that we had to find an opening. This will be a very special concert benefiting Manna Food Bank on the week before Thanksgiving.

Communities Caring at Christmas is in need

Posted on: November 17th, 2014 by brent

From Sue Straughn…

In 1979, WEAR-TV began the Communities Caring at Christmas program.  It was the station’s effort to share the true meaning of the holiday with those who are less fortunate.  The program has evolved over the years to address the changing needs in our communities.  Currently, Communities Caring provides new toys, clothing and daily living needs for abused, neglected or abandoned children living in foster care, children living in poverty and adults with developmental disabilities in Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa and Walton counties.

Communities Caring At Christmas is solely a volunteer effort.  Leading the way are our corporate sponsor, Sandy Sansing Dealerships and the employees of Gulf Power Company.  Hundreds of willing hands and open hearts provide the donations and manpower to make this program what it is.  In 2013, through the generosity of compassionate individuals, organizations, churches and schools, we were able to share the joy of Christmas with almost 7,000 of our neighbors.

This year looks to be especially challenging as we try to meet the needs of a growing number of children coming into foster care and families in financial crisis.  We’re asking you to please help us continue the tradition of caring through your donation of cash, new toys or clothing.  Your gifts can me brought or mailed to:


Communities Caring At Christmas


4990 Mobile Highway

Pensacola, FL   32506

Thank you for your consideration and for sharing in the true meaning and spirit of the season.
