MWKF youth invited to ‘Pass, Punt & Play’ event for deserving youth

The DuBow Family Foundation and the Jacksonville Jaguars defensive line hosted its annual “Pass, Punt and Play” event on Tuesday, Dec. 6, where 25 youth from MaliVai Washington Kids Foundation  (MWKF)—along with 25 from the Bridge of Northeast Florida—were invited to a behind- the- scenes tour of EverBank Field, followed by a pizza party and ultimately a “shopping spree” at Target. Each student got the opportunity to shop for family members alongside Jaguars players and volunteers.

“Our students had a blast experiencing all of the activities that were planned for them throughout the evening. Getting a chance to tour the locker and equipment rooms, having a pizza party and meeting some of the coaches and staff was all very exciting for everyone. We’re very thankful to have been a part of this event,” says MWKF Community Relations Manager, Ashley Strickland.
