Help Memorial Help our Local USO

Last updated 4 years ago

Memorial Hospital is proud to partner with the local USO and WJXT-TV
to collect much needed items for the USO Welcome Center. A drive to collect
toiletries and snack items will run through the entire month of July. Memorial
employees and members of the community are being asked to drop of items
at any of these locations:
 
Memorial Hospital’s Main Entrance
3625 University Blvd. South
Jacksonville, FL 32216
 
Memorial Emergency Center – Julington Creek
42 Doctors Village Dr.
St. Johns, FL 32259
 
Memorial Imaging – Mandarin
11701 San Jose Blvd.
Jacksonville, FL 32223
 
Memorial Family Medicine – Jacksonville Beach
630 Jacksonville Dr.
Jacksonville Beach, FL 32250
 
Memorial Family Med – Point Meadows
7740 Point Meadows Drive
Suite 201
Jacksonville, FL 32256
 
The USO Welcome Center provides our Armed Forces and families with a
home away from home atmosphere and place to relax, enjoy a snack, check
e-mail or phone home before being deployed or just after traveling from
overseas.   Additionally, the JIA USO Welcome Center has a “Quiet Room”
space that provides families a secluded area away from the main Center to say
their private goodbye or hello.
 
This drive is part of the Positively Jax Campaign on WJXT-TV, in which
Memorial partners with Channel 4 to recognize the good that goes on
in our community. Memorial is very proud to sponsor this USO drive, and
is excited about helping local members of our military.
