Over a $1 million was awarded among ten area non-profit organizations this weekend as Impact 100 for the Pensacola area made their annual gifts.
David Bear is on the board of directors of the Pensacola MESS Hall, "What we do is we really make an impact in our community with education on Math, Engineering, Science, and Stuff, that is what the MESS Hall stands for and to be able to take our show on the road will reach a lot more people."
Some local nonprofit organizations suffered losses during the recent storm and flooding. Among those is Open Books, a nonprofit bookstore and home to the prison books project. Steven Kell is a volunteer at Open Books who has been involved with the cleanup since last Wednesday.
