PFLAG Jacksonville's Successes: Scholarships and Education

Our PFLAG chapter in Jacksonville, FL participates in an annual billboard campaign to help educate people in the area about PFLAG's message of love and support for the GLBT community.

Twelve billboards are set up on a rotating basis in the area, and they generate a lot of positive support in the community. This year the billboards were on display around Jacksonville from July 24 - August 4.

The chapter also has one of the largest scholarship programs in the country for any PFLAG chapter. This coming Saturday the chapter will host its annual Scholarship Awards Dinner where they will be giving out $24,000 in college scholarships to people from the local GLBT community. Through the incredible generosity of donors, the chapter has given out $154,000 in college scholarships since 1996!

We applaud you, PFLAG Jacksonville, and thank you for your continued efforts to reach out to the community. We are so proud of your success!
