WJCT Public Media Presents Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Sweater Drive

November 17th, 2021 · Leave a Comment

WJCT Public Media is partnering with VyStar Credit Union, Suddath and the Tom Bush Family of Dealerships to present the 19th annual Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Sweater Drive to collect new and gently used sweaters, jackets and blankets through November 30. These items will be donated to nonprofit organizations across Duval, Clay, Nassau and St. Johns Counties.

WJCT is one of many public media organizations across the nation that celebrates this event in honor of Fred Rogers, host of the popular television show “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.” In 2020, the sweater drive collected and distributed more than 20,000 cold weather essentials for First Coast Residents.

Donation drop off locations include the WJCT Public Media headquarters, located at 100 Festival Park Avenue in Jacksonville, as well as VyStar Credit Union branches and Tom Bush Dealerships.

Suddath will use its moving trucks to collect donated items, then bring them back to its Jacksonville warehouse for sorting, before delivering them to participating nonprofits.
