Since 2003, health organizations and communities around the United States have observed April as Donate Life Month: an annual celebration of those who have received transplants, those waiting to receive the gift of life, donors and their families.
Members in the news from April 10 through April 17.
Earth Day is Monday, April 22, but IKEA Jacksonville is celebrating Earth Day all week long with giveaways, crafts, workshops, and more!

Food Drive to benefit Blessings in a Backpack
First Coast Blessings in a Backpack provides hunger-free weekends during the school year to children on the First Coast. More than 13 million children in America live in households that struggle with food insecurity. Over 50% of the children in Duval school district and 25% in St. Johns county schools face food insecurity. It costs as little as $100 to feed one child on the weekends for an entire school year. Every Friday, students receive a bag with nutritional food that requires little to no preparation. They return to school on Monday ready to learn.
ImpactJAX is asking you to bring a fruit cup item (like applesauce) to the upcoming Holiday Party that can be included in one of the bags that will be given to kids before they go home for the holidays.
Food items should be in single servings. Canned food items should have pop-tops, as some children may not have access to a can opener.
Thank you to our host:
