Holiday Care Package Assembly Day in Jacksonville
October 20th – October 22nd (multiple shifts available)
Jumbo Shrimp Stadium

Join CSX Pride in Service, Operation Gratitude, and the Jacksonville community for our largest assembly event of the year! Together, we will assemble 10,000 Holiday Care Packages for our deployed troops to thank them for their service.
To reach this ambitious goal, we will be hosting three volunteer days. We’ll need your help on Thursday, October 20th and Friday, October 21st to set up and prepare all the Care Package items in advance of our big assembly day on Saturday, October 22nd. Interested individuals must register in advance to attend the event and can sign up for multiple shifts and days. This event is open to the public and we’d love to see your family and friends (ages 10 and up) join this important community effort. Please share this registration page with all who are interested.
