Northwest St. Johns Annual Food Drive to be held November 15th
ST. JOHNS, Fla., October 2, 2014 - It’s that time of year again. JCP CARES will be sweeping your neighborhood on Saturday, November 15th to restock the shelves of food pantries within St. Johns County. Food collected will benefit Celebration Lutheran Food Pantry, located at 810 Roberts Road and the Hastings and Armstrong communities. Donation bags will be distributed to each house during the week of November 8th and residents are asked to have their donations back at their mailbox by 10:00 A.M. the following Saturday. This year, fabulous coupons for Saucy Taco, YOBE, and Smoothie Café will be attached to the bag!
Volunteers are needed to deliver bags, pick up donations and sort food. This is an excellent service hour opportunity for students, as well as a good family project. Please email email@example.com for more information.
A special thanks to business partners Publix, VyStar, The Creekline, Pinch a Penny, The UPS store, The Champions Club, Julington Creek Chiropractic and Wellness Center, the Rotary Club of St. Johns, several local schools and all of the volunteers who help make the JCP CARES Annual Food Drive a success!

(Elkton, Fla.,)- The First Tee started in 1997, with a home office located at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Florida. In just under 20 years The First Tee has expanded to about 200 chapters across the United States and four international locations.
The purpose of The First Tee is to give young people of all backgrounds and opportunity to develop, through golf and character education, life-enhancing values such as honesty, integrity and sportsmanship. The organizations accomplishes this goal by teaching participants about The First Tee Nine Core Values, and Nine Healthy Habits. There are over 300 children actively participating in The First Tee programming, which includes golf and life-skills classes.
One of the main goals of The First Tee of North Florida is to give every child the opportunity to play the sport of golf. The easiest way to support this goal is to become a First Tee of North Florida Ambassador Member. The cost of the membership helps to maintain this goal that no child gets denied access to The First Tee program for an inability to pay.
Some of the benefits of becoming an Ambassador Member are a foursome golf certificate for The Official Golf Course of The World Golf Village King and Bear, The Official Golf Course of The World Golf Village Slammer and Squire TPC Sawgrass Dye’s Valley Course, all at a discounted price. These are just a few of the benefits that come with being an Ambassador Member of The First Tee of North Florida.
Ambassador Membership costs $125 for an individual membership and $175 for a joint membership.

1 in 8 Americans has Alzheimer’s disease, but they aren’t the only ones affected. 15 million family members provide the majority of in-home care for their loved ones with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
It’s a tough job, not just because the hours are long, but because the disease is complicated. Each stage of Alzheimer’s causes changes in behavior and care needs, so caregivers are always in need of new information and resources.
That’s why the Department of Health and Human Services created alzheimers.gov—one user-friendly online place with all the best information available from government and leading Alzheimer’s organizations.
