Dear PTA Advocates of Duval County:

Many of us will gather this month and celebrate the traditions of gratitude. Our loved ones may be far away this season and the circumstances of a global pandemic have definitely worn us down, but there is still so much to be thankful for. 

It’s a good time to think about those with whom we can share our abundance. Whether we can do a little or do a lot… giving, donating and volunteering helps make our communities better and sets an example for our children that will go forward with them and spread into more communities. 

I hope for a happy and healthy Thanksgiving for all of you, our Duval community and beyond as we keep up the good work to build a bridge together.

Theresa Rogers
President, Duval County Council of PTAs and PTSAs

This initiative was put on “pause” this year due to our being virtual. However, we would like to announce a project for our County Council and Duval PTAs during this holiday season. We will be supporting the Hubbard House Toy Store which provides toys to children living in a shelter and may be their only opportunity to receive a present. 
Participation is voluntary but we would like to encourage anyone interested in helping to support this cause. Please go here: for requested gift items, drop off locations and dates. 

In addition, remember there are so many wonderful charities supporting children. Here are a few to keep in mind during this season and beyond including some spotlighted and supported last year through the Duval PTAs Have Heart Initiative--
