There's not much going on right now, so I wanted to do a quick post noting some of the things the Jacksonville Jaguars players are doing in the community around the holiday season. Pictured to the right is fullback Greg Jones, who treated kids from Family Support Services to dinner at Chick-Fil-A and also took them shopping. Jones was joined by running back Deji Karim as well. Greg Jones wasn't the only player out an about yesterday, as rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert partnered with Winn-Dixie to have lunch with children from military families, and then took them shopping at a sporting goods store. Gabbert was joined by tight end Zach Miller and his wife.
Not only were the players out, but the Jacksonville Jaguars Touchdown Club and Wayne and Delores Weaver donated $27,500 to Second Harvest North Florida, to provide holiday meals to less fortunate families and senior citizens. Second Harvest is filling over 1,000 food boxes that will be distributed among the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Florida, The Bridge of Northeast Florida, Communities in Schools of Nassau County, Communities in Schools of St. Johns County, Urban Jacksonville/Cathedral Foundation at the Cathedral Residences, Heart for Children, MaliVai Washington Kids Foundation, and Peace Presbyterian Church.
