Letter: Thanks to Jaguar Football Team

Dear Editor,

We, at St. Gerard Campus, would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the Jaguar Football Team for including us as a grant recipient this year.

The Jacksonville Jaguar Foundation has funded grants for so many worthwhile groups in our area that help children and we are proud to be a part of the good work they promote.

St. Gerard Campus, a fully accredited Interfaith High School for pregnant teenage girls, ranked 3rd in the State of Florida among the top 60 private high schools and unique in the United States. This June, we graduated 100% of our senior class, with most of our young ladies going onto college or into the military. In addition, four of our graduates were awarded the Florida Bright Future Scholarship this year. We provide housing for high-risk, abused, confused or neglected pregnant teens and a fully licensed teaching day care facility for all students.

The education, residency and day care are provided at no cost and is funded through donations and charities only.

Grants from the Jacksonville Jaguar Foundation have helped to make this possible. We also benefit from “Dignity You Wear”, another charity funded by the Jaguars. From the poorest of homes, our young women can “dress for success” for college and jobs.

Without the benefits the Jaguars provide for battered women, the underserved pregnant teenagers and children, we could never meet our goals to empower through education. They bring great joy to our city as benefactors and as part of the NFL.

We want to acknowledge their contribution, thank them for what they have brought to Jacksonville and pray they can continue their earnest work for the underprivileged, the destitute and mostly for the children. I pray God bless them in the future.

With deep gratitude,

Caroline A. Wolff
Founder and Executive Director
St. Gerard Campus
