HandsOn Jacksonville is hosting the inaugural Celebrate GOOD Festival to honor the true spirit of volunteerism in Jacksonville. Celebrate GOOD is an afternoon of live music, great food, volunteer opportunities and fun for the entire family. The festival is FREE to anyone who volunteers in Jacksonville, as well as those interested in getting involved with volunteering.
