On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, an annual day of service, we set out to help thousands of families struggling to make ends meet across Northeast Florida through a Positively Jax food drive. Thanks to your support, we were able to do that and then some.

Through your donations during Monday’s food drive, we collected more than 21,000 pounds of food and $65. You helped us raise an additional $5,340 by donating to Feeding Northeast Florida’s virtual food drive. Combine, those donations translate to roughly 50,000 meals for those in need.

We want to thank everyone who contributed to these efforts; we couldn’t have done it without you.

And remember, this is only the beginning. As we’ve said before, we’re taking Positively Jax to the next level this year in hopes of making a difference in our community. One of the ways we’re doing that is by sharing 1,000 good deeds happening across the Jacksonville area in 2021 — and this is a promising start.
