JU Football Coaches' Wives To Sponsor 2nd Annual Ronald McDonald Wish List Drive
Nov. 6, 2003
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - JU football is having its 2nd Annual Wish List Collection Drive to benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Jacksonville, as the families staying at the House will use the items collected for the drive. The drive will be sponsored by the JU football coaches' wives before the Dolphins' final home game against Webber International on Sat., Nov. 15. Fans can bring their items to the table located near the ticket area prior to the game. The first 150 donors will receive a free JU football t-shirt.
A few recent listings of needed items have been: Styrofoam cups, Lysol spray, canned coffee, and white copy paper. Specific requests from the outreach coordinator were for 30-minute pre-paid phone cards (for use by families) and cans of Endust spray. They could also use gift cards to stores such as Target, Home Depot, or Publix. Last season's inaugural drive was a huge success due in large part to the generosity of the players' families.
Any needed items can be found by visiting www.rmhjax.org or by calling the JU football office at (904) 256-7470.
