The Jacksonville Jaguars have announced that they’ll be donating $70,000 to local nonprofits that are providing services and assistance to veterans and military service members.
And it’s a great group. I’ve worked with or gotten help from some of them.These organizations include….
Five STAR Veterans Center which Provides residential and support services for veterans.
K9s for Warriors who supports the expansion of warrior and service dog matching and training program.
Operation Barnabas which offers emergency fund support for veterans in Clay County.
Operation New Uniform which provides comprehensive training classes for veterans transitioning to civilian life.
United Way of Northeast Florida who Supports Mission United which works to connect military and veterans with needed services (Heart of Florida United Way has helped me in the past. Very important work).
Northeast Florida Women Veterans which supports women veterans starting a business.
Florida National Guard Foundation who offers emergency financial assistance for Guard members and their families. The Florida Guard may be the hardest working in the country.
Hope 4 Veterans which Offers a holistic approach to mental health by combining art therapy and peer support.
Friends of Jacksonville Veterans Treatment Court which supports the unique needs of veterans who have had an interaction with the law.
Yoga 4 Change who Offers in-person and virtual trauma-informed yoga classes for veterans; and
And the Jacksonville Humane Society which Supports technical training for veterans wishing to pursue employment in animal care and veterinary services.
The Jaguars are also off to a fast start this season, as they try to continue their momentum from their playoff run last year. This young team has the potential to go far this year.
Cheers to them.
