Community Connections Jacksonville Needs Your Help

Community Connections is a long term homeless shelter for women and children in downtown Jacksonville. Osjah’s Wish and The Mandarin High Parkour Club are redoing a room there for a young Mom and an 11 month old boy who will be moving into this room this Saturday… They literally arrive in this location with the clothes on their back… PLEASE help us change lives… we would LOVE for you to come and help us this Saturday to paint and get the room set up but if you are not able and can at least help up get the items together… that would be a HUGE help too! Here is the list of items we need… anything you can do to help will make the goal that much closer… if you aren’t local and/or can’t come and help… please consider sending a donation through Paypal ([email protected]). Even $5 or $10 will help a lot… thanks for anything you can do… You can email [email protected] for more info or questions.
