SERVPRO supports the JT Townsend Foundation
The JT Townsend Foundation, SERVPRO Jacksonville South & Arlington team, friends and family gathered to remember JT Townsend on February 7, 2017 which was marked as JT Townsend Day in Jacksonville back in 2015.
The day of remembrance was held at Unity Plaza to celebrate what would have been JT’s 30th birthday and to announce the Foundation’s recent milestone in charitable giving – raising over $500,000 in funds to assist more than 245 First Coast families.
A reception was held at Unity Plaza where a commemorative stone honoring JT is located and a check was presented to the JT Townsend Foundation from long-time JT Townsend Foundation Partner, SERVPRO Jacksonville South & Arlington. Bryce Clark, Owner of SERVPRO Jacksonville South & Arlington and team has been supporting JT Townsend Foundation for nearly five years through golf tournaments, community events and other fundraising activities and have donated over $40,000 to the Foundation to continue their work in helping families living with disabilities on the First Coast.
The month of February also kicked off the continued efforts of friends in the community to raise funds for the JT Townsend Endowed Scholarship at the University of North Florida, in memory of JT who was a UNF alumnus, who earned his degree in sport management in the spring of 2013. The scholarship will be awarded to undergraduate sport management majors.
