JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A big thanks to Martha, a retired Duval County teacher who is our first "apple buyer!" Martha happened to see us at the Winn-Dixie on Atlantic today and donated $10 for an apple.
You can join us at participating Winn-Dixie stores on Saturday, Sept. 21 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Look for the giant red apple! We're raising money to build what planners say will be the only free dental clinic in Jacksonville, unless you're homeless.
You can purchase a fresh apple for any donation amount you choose. We're suggesting at least $2.00.
Remember, whatever you donate will be matched by the Weaver Foundation. (The foundation will match to a total for this project up to $100,000.)
If we raise the money, the clinic could break ground in December.
Here are the Winn-Dixie store locations:
-3000 Dunn Avenue, #52, Jacksonville, 32218
-5647 Roosevelt Boulevard, Jacksonville, 32244
-9866 Baymeadows Road, Jacksonville, 32256
-12777 Atlantic Boulevard, #21, Jacksonville, 32225
