JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The best birthday gift for James Coleman is the opportunity to give back.
Coleman, a former FSU football player and local radio host, is hosting the third annual Community Giveback Weekend, which includes a backpack giveaway, food distribution with FarmShare and a youth football camp.
These events will take place from Saturday, July 30 to Sunday, July 31. Both events are free, but attendees are required to pre-register. You can register here.
The backpack giveaway is for students in kindergarten through eighth grade, and the food distribution event is on July 30 from 10 a.m. to noon.
Coleman plans to give away at least 2,500 backpacks stuffed with school supplies and provide food for 1,000 local residents.
It will be held at the North Shore Elementary School on 5701 Silver Plaza.
The football camp on Sunday is also free and open to boys and girls ages 7 to 15.
The camp takes place at Andrew Jacksonville High School on 3816 North Main Street from 9 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
“People are still reeling from the impact of this pandemic. Some aren’t necessarily willing to ask for the help, so the backpack and food distribution is a way for them to receive the assistance in a way that’s not demeaning — that’s rewarding for me,” Coleman said.
