Northeast Florida Council of UNCF to host UNCF Week

The Northeast Florida Council of UNCF is launching a new week of activities designed to excite the Northeast Florida community to support students and historically black colleges and universities. The 5 days of virtual activities will be held March 7-11. Activities includes student spotlight, scholarship forum and a virtual breakfast hosted by Action News Jax evening anchors Tenikka Hughes John Bachman. Action News Jax is a proud media sponsor of UNCF.

The one-of-its-kind weeklong digital festivities are designed, in an increasingly difficult time in our nation’s history, to support high-performing students who are challenged financially, working to prevent them from giving up on their dreams of higher education. UNCF is dedicating its virtual week to raise funds to increase scholarships and support HBCUs, including Jacksonville’s local UNCF-member institution, Edward Waters College.
