AIGAJAX Gives Back: Salvation Army Soup Kitchen

This past Sunday we met at The Salvation Army downtown to serve more than 100 meals to men, women and children. Jacksonville was a rainy city, so the facility offered a dry and peaceful environment as well a hot plate.

Volunteering on these 4th Sundays is more than feeding the needy. We are supporting The Salvation Army, who in their effort, provide community based corrections programs that meet judicial and government needs – which they have been committed to since 1975.

The organization reaches out to the Jacksonville community with residential and misdemeanor programs. These programs have grown dramatically and changed the lives of thousands while creating a better Jacksonville.

It’s encouraging to know that our local design industry is consistently committed to offering their time on Sunday evenings to serve the Jacksonville community with these hands-on events.

If you would like to lend a hand during our next outeach, scheduled for Sunday evening, May 23rd, please contact me, Ashley Hazen, at
