In partnership with High School 9:12, we presented a series of televised tributes called “Brightest and Best”. The series took place from May to July and included virtual graduations and senior showcases for public and private schools all across our region.

Stuff the Bus
Every year, thousands of children across the First Coast start school without essential supplies for academic success. This year due to COVID-19 and with so many more experiencing financial hardship, we expected the need for school supplies to be even greater than ever. Community First partnered with First Coast News to host a virtual donation drive. In all, nearly $40,000 was raised to support United Way of North East Florida’s Full Service Schools. The funds collected directly benefit more than 57,000 students in over 80 Duval County public schools.
