2023 Hope for the Holidays

On Thursday, November 30, The Jim & Tabitha Furyk Foundation provided the food and supplies to pack more than 6,000 holiday meals for at-risk children in the greater Jacksonville area. With help from the sponsors of Constellation FURYK & FRIENDS presented by Circle K, The Jim & Tabitha Furyk Foundation has increased the number of bags from 500 in the first year to 6,000 in 2023.

For the 12th year in a row, the Foundation set up a volunteer experience for the community to pack bags with their families for children who are identified as food insecure in Duval, Clay and St Johns Counties. This hands-on opportunity secures a meal of canned ham, green beans, corn muffins, mashed potatoes, stuffing, macaroni, rice, canned corn, oatmeal, applesauce, and candy canes for children who might otherwise go hungry during the long holiday break.

In 2023, we packed more than 6,000 holiday bags with 66,000+ food items distributed to…

  • 4,546 bags to Blessings in a Backpack students
  • 375 bags to Guardian Catholic School families
  • 300 bags to our Military families at NAS Jacksonville
  • 100 bags to Family Links, Wolfson Children’s Hospital
  • 100 bags to MaliVai Washington Youth Foundation children
  • 100 bags to Daniel Kids families
  • 100 bags to New American Welcome Center
  • 75 bags to Community PedsCare families
  • 30 bags to Youth Crisis Center
  • 20 bags to Arize Together
  • 20 bags to Hubbard House
  • 1,000+ food items went to stock Jewish Family & Community Services food pantry
  • 34 Duval, St. Johns & Clay County Schools received holiday bags in the Blessings in a Backpack program

Because of the community’s overwhelming support, we were able to pack all of the bags in under one hour with families of all ages including the Bolles, Episcopal and Nease lacrosse teams, UNF softball team, local high school cheerleaders and more.
