Once again our tight knit community has banded together to help those in need. If you have not heard about the skateboarding accident that local teen Will Fentress survived read this blog. Will is a Pungo resident, but has several ties to the Sandbridge community and many Sandbridge residents have jumped at the opportunity to help our Pungo neighbors and friends raise money to help Will’s family. Other than supporting the Fentress Family you can soak up some outdoors fun at False Cape with the plethora of events to choose from out there.
