JACKSONVILLE, FLA. – Almost everyone has at least one good idea to make the First Coast a better place, if only they had the funds to make it happen. Starting tomorrow, and for the next 90 days, anyone, anywhere on the First Coast — including civic groups— has the opportunity to earn $1,000 towards a new or existing initiative.
Now in its second year, Community First’s Investing In You contest will award $1,000 every two weeks for 90 days to fund innovative ideas for improving communities throughout the First Coast. Idea entries can be submitted through the credit union’s Facebook site. Last year’s winners included a variety of projects ranging from educational technology for at-risk kids to swimming tubs for rescued tigers.
