Jaguars’ Allen Robinson Hosts Back to School Program

Jacksonville Jaguars’ Wide Receiver Allen Robinson hosted his 2nd Annual Back to School program on Tuesday, a community outreach initiative of Allen Robinson’s Within Reach Foundation. The foundation’s mission is to provide educational opportunities and resources to low-income and inner city Jacksonville-area students to help put success within their reach.

Robinson provided 50 Jacksonville-area kids from the Boys & Girls Club of Northeast Florida with a shopping spree in partnership with Academy Sports + Outdoors to prepare them to head back to school with confidence. The pre-selected children spent the evening roaming the aisles adding shoes, clothing, sports accessories, backpacks and other school supplies to their carts. Through his foundation, Robinson plans to make the Back to School initiative an annual event.

Additionally, at Academy Sports + Outdoors, Allen announced that his 2nd Annual Celebrity Surf & Turf will be held on Monday, October 2nd at Epping Forest Yacht & Country Club. Allen and his teammates will step off the field for one evening only to mix and mingle with guests. In addition to meeting their favorite Jacksonville Jaguars players, guests will enjoy a cocktail reception, a fine dinner and have an opportunity to participate in exciting live and silent auctions…all in the name of a great cause, Allen Robinson’s Within Reach Foundation.
