Now in its 34th year, the J. P. Hall Children’s Charities is a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the quality of life for the underprivileged children of Clay County, Florida.
The Charities is an all volunteer organization based in Clay County. With very low administrative costs, your donations go directly to serving the children of Clay County who need your help the most. We work all year long to serve children in our community. Please remember that all of your donation stays in Clay County.
Although, the J.P. Hall Children’s Charity is most widely known for the Annual Christmas Party for underprivileged children, we also help Clay County children at other times during the year.
The Scholarship Awards Program started in 1996 to benefit Clay County high school Seniors who would not be able to further their education without financial assistance. These needs- based awards vary in amount to either St. Johns River State College or the University of North Florida. To date, 252 Clay County students have received more than $409,000.00.
The Annual Christmas Party for underprivileged children is our most well-known activity and has been held each year for the last thirty three years. The Party is open to any Clay County resident whose family is in need of assistance during the Christmas holidays. Children receive new and used toys and the entire family can receive free clothing. This event will be held on Saturday, December 19th from 8:00 A.M. until 12 noon at the Clay County Fairgrounds in Green Cove Springs. We serve children ages newborn through fourteen years old and the children must be present to receive gifts.
The J.P. Hall Children’s Charities has made great strides in keeping pace with the needs of Clay County’s children in these tough economic times. With the success of our programs and our stability in the community, the Charities is recognized as a valuable resource in Clay County and regularly works with the Clay County Sheriff’s Office, Clay County School District and other social service agencies.
