Lackawanna Back-to-School Celebration

  • Mallison Park 3151 Lenox Avenue Jacksonville, FL, 32254 United States (map)

Each year, we team up with One Love Christian Center, Christ Church InTown and the Police Athletic League (PAL) to celebrate the school children of the Lackawanna neighborhood!

There will be a cookout, snow-cones, bounce houses, a video game truck and more. We'll also be giving away hundreds of backpacks filled with donated school supplies.

We are in need of school supply donations (see a list of needed items below) — please drop your items off at the table in our lobby. We also need about 30 volunteers to help on the day of the event in 30-minute increments between 10am and 1pm. If you’re able to volunteer, please email Martha Paulk at
