    Give Where You Live!

    Want to help in the fight against Breast Cancer?

    October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and The RITA (Research Is The Answer) Foundation continues to make a difference in Jacksonville. Founded in Deercreek in 1997, RITA has a special opportunity to double donations! Baptist Health Foundation is MATCHING 100% any donation going into an endowment through November 30, 2017. 100% of your donation will go into one of RITA’s five cancer endowment funds at Baptist Health and it will be matched. So your donation is doubled! The RITA Foundation is a 501 (C) (3) non-profit volunteer organization. Our Mission is to raise money and awareness in the fight to find a cure. We have donated 100% of the money from our special fund raising events with no salary or overhead costs deduction for the last 20 years. Over $4,500,000.00 has been donated to cancer programs in Jacksonville.

    To give where you live, you can donate on our website, www.the-rita-foundation.org or write a check, payable to The RITA Foundation and mail to, 8334 Amherst Hills Lane, Jacksonville, FL 32256. You can also give in honor of or in memory of a loved one. 100% of your donation will be added to our $300,000.00 Cancer Endowments at Baptist Health where your gift will be matched to yield revenue toward a cure.

    Thank you for your support.
    Charles and Nancy Jantz, Founders

DWA Holiday Gift Project

For this year’s Holiday Gift Project, the DWA has selected the teenage young ladies from the PACE School for Girls to be the recipients. Donations of new jewelry, toiletries and other age appropriate items are welcomed. Your gifts for the PACE girls may be dropped off at the home of Donna Bernard (464-0910) at 9907 Vineyard Lake Lane or at the home of Vicki Khan (519-7722) at 10148 Deercreek Club Road East. Thank you in advance for making the holidays sparkle for these special young women!

DWA Outreach to PACE Students

Thanks to the generous support of our members and the Deercreek community, the DWA was able to illuminate the holidays for the PACE girls. In November, the DWA provided girls from the neediest families with gift cards to Winn Dixie. The December jewelry drive enabled the DWA to present each young lady with a piece of bling. We are so grateful for your help in making the season brighter for the PACE students!

    Ronald McDonald House – Halloween Costume Drive

    Believe it or not, it’s time to start thinking about Halloween again! The DWA is excited to continue supporting the Ronald McDonald House and are looking forward to our annual costume drive. The children are always SO excited to receive brand new Halloween costumes and the parents sincerely welcome the distraction from the difficult times their children are experiencing.

    We are collecting new, unopened Halloween costumes between October 4 and 22. Suggested sizes range from toddler to young ‘tweens’ for Halloween accessories, i.e. animal ears and tails and hats, being the most preferred items. Keep in mind that, due to the health issues of the children, used costumes cannot be accepted.

    Please remember as you are shopping to pick up a small item that could be utilized by the RMH for Halloween and drop it in the marked bin at the guard gate or at Barbara Smith’s house: 7804 Blakeford Mill Lane or call 716-1734 and we will schedule a pickup for you.
