The Jaguars recently announced ten local finalists for the NFL Community Quarterback Award, a volunteer recognition program that will donate nearly $1 million leaguewide to community organizations served by outstanding volunteers.
The Jacksonville-area nonprofit organizations listed below will receive $1,000 grants on behalf of their volunteers who are now eligible to be named the Jaguars Community Quarterback. This year's team winner will receive an additional $10,000 grant donated in his/her name and two runners-up will receive additional $2,500 grants for their designated charities.
Jaguars owners Delores Barr and Wayne Weaver will recognize the finalists at a luncheon scheduled for December 10 at the Adam's Mark Hotel. All 32 team winners become eligible for the national NFL Community Quarterback Award, to be announced in mid-December by a blue-ribbon panel appointed by the NFL. NFL Charities will make an additional $25,000 donation to the organization where the national winner volunteers.
