graphic for may online auction for the homeless coalition in st johns county


Join the St. Johns County Chamber Leadership Class of 2020 on May 29th for our live Facebook auction and day of donation to raise at least $15,000. All funds benefit the Homeless Coalition and Emergency Services of St. Johns County. The Leadership St. Johns Class of 2020 project continues its commitment to raise funds and help the Coalition’s renovations for transitional housing. Over the past months, the COVID-19 pandemic not only changed the way we do business, but it has also impacted many lives. People are struggling like never before. The class recognizes this urgent need and is expanding its support for HCES, a vital community service provider.

Thanks to cash donations from Herbie Wiles (Received before COVID-19), Community Foundation of Northeast Florida, St. Johns County Board of Realtors, cash donation collected by LSJ Classmate Nikki Pontello, Ancient City Game Fish Association, and St. Johns Title, we have already raised $5,750.

You have 3 ways to help us achieve our class goal of raising at least $15,000 for the coalition on or before May 29!
