JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Today the Jacksonville Jaguars and US Assure announced Kathy Signorile of Jacksonville as the recipient of the Community MVP Award. As the winner, Signorile has selected the organization St. Michael's Soldiers as the recipient of a $1,000 donation courtesy of US Assure and the Jaguars Foundation.
"Unsung heroes like Kathy are undoubtedly the most valuable players in our community," said Jaguars Foundation President Peter Racine. "It's a privilege for the Jaguars Foundation to partner with US Assure to contribute to her continued efforts to recognize the sacrifices made by members of our armed forces."
Signorile founded St. Michael's Soldiers, a nonprofit that sends "Home Sweet Home" care packages to deployed military men and women around the world. The organization also coordinates welcome home celebrations for returning troops and supports local wounded veterans with financial assistance to help make ends meet during treatment and rehabilitation.
"US Assure has been in the business of building communities for nearly 40 years, and Kathy's tireless dedication to building a support community for our military is the ultimate example of community building." said US Assure's Chief Operating Officer Ryan Schwartz. "We're honored to recognize her and St. Michael's Soldiers through our partnership with the Jaguars and the Community MVP Award."
The Community MVP program was established this season to celebrate the unsung champions in the Jacksonville and northeast Florida community. Nominated individuals are those who have made exceptional and lasting contributions through their unique commitment, passion for giving and humanitarian spirit.
As the winner of the Community MVP Award, Signorile received VIP treatment at the Jaguars game this past Sunday including premium US Assure Club seating, parking and pregame field passes. In the future, she'll also receive a Community MVP trophy and a visit to St. Michael's Soldiers by a Jaguars player.
