PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Florida – On Thursday, December 9, the Jim & Tabitha Furyk Foundation will provide the food and supplies needed to pack more than 5,000 holiday meals for at-risk children in the greater Jacksonville area.

For the 10th year in a row, the foundation has set up a volunteer experience for children to help children in their community. Students in public and private schools in the area are encouraged to prepare bags with their families for other children identified as food insecure in Duval and St. Johns counties.

The convenient opportunity guarantees a meal of stuffing, corn, green beans, noodles, pasta sauce, ramen, canned sausage, hot cocoa, candy canes, cereal, Slim Jim, cookies, and Rice-a-Roni for children who might. otherwise go hungry on long vacations. With the help of the sponsors of Constellation Furyk & Friends presented by Circle K, the Jim & Tabitha Furyk Foundation was able to increase the number of bags from 500 in the first year to 5,000 in 2021. The brands AT&T, PepsiCo, Target and Conagra have also supported this effort.
