Seeking DESC Defenders, a call to action

Seeking DESC Defenders, a call to action
Honorary Chairs David and Lisa Williams with Susan and Rick Brodeur

Downtown Ecumenical Services Council is having a party, a party with a purpose on Aug. 23 at WJCT Studios. The organization has been helping on the front lines during the most severe impacts of COVID-19 on the job market and the ravaging impacts on public health. They need more superheroes, more locals to step up in the fight to beat back poverty and the circumstances that keep people from thriving during tough times.

With a small staff, an outstanding volunteer core and a group of dedicated board and committee members, the organization gets the job done…but not without the help of donors and other sponsors from our community. Join Captain Underwear, Queen Appétit, Commander Current and Princess Pantaloons as they call on Jacksonville’s finest citizens to celebrate DESC and those who come for help.

“There are families struggling with the realities of unemployment, health crises and education challenges.  DESC has been meeting these challenges head-on for our community for over 38 years.  When we toured DESC, we were overwhelmed with the individual care and the “stretching of a dollar” that occurs with the staff and volunteers.  The Edna Sproull Williams Foundation has been supporting DESC for many years, and this is a chance for us to carry on the support established by our fathers Pat and Mike Williams,” shared Honorary Chairs David and Lisa Williams.

For more information visit or call 904-398-7955 to speak to someone at DESC about how you can help.
