Charity Begins At Home

For one Avondale resident, charity meant giving up her king-size bed to sleep in her closet so 25 strangers who had just suffered enormous personal tragedy could take refuge in her home. For a San Marco couple, it meant rallying nearby neighbors to welcome a family of strangers with a sick child to the neighborhood for three months, when there was no room available at Ronald McDonald House.
In both cases it is clear that for some big-hearted Jacksonville residents, charity begins at home and also extends out to the neighborhood.
