LOCAL PROJECTS

 

FIFTH QUARTER

Fifth Quarter hosts a free and safe hangout after each home high school football game. Students often make bad decisions after a football game, but Fifth Quarter is a safe environment for our city’s youth to hang out and encounter God after the game. 

BACKPACK DRIVE

The Backpack Drive providers our local students in need with the right tools to succeed in school. There are thousands of students across the Jacksonville area that can’t afford to get the supplies they need for school. The Backpack Drive is a back-to-school project to help local students start the new school year right. With our partnership  with local schools, we will provide 200 students with backpacks filled with school supplies and 100 teachers with additional supplies for their classrooms. 

ANGEL TREE

Angel Tree is a program of Prison Fellowship that connects parents in prison with their children through delivery of Christmas gifts. 2.7 million children in the U.S. have a story that may be filled with the abandonment, loneliness, and shame that come from having a mom or dad in prison. Angel Tree reaches out to the children of prisoners and their families with the love of Christ. This unique opportunity to share God’s love by helping to meet the physical, emotional, spiritual needs of the families of prisoners.
