Back to School with BEAM helps Beaches families get their children ready for school by providing clothing, new backpacks, school supplies, shoes, and underwear to children in our service area.
Please join us for this year’s BEAM of Light Beach Ball presented by Ullmann Brown Wealth Advisors. Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 24 for an elegant evening of fun, friendship and goodwill as we work together to provide emergency assistance and a path to economic stability.
The evening will include an open bar, heavy hors d’oeuvres, live music, and auctions. Tickets will be available for $150 each. Check back on this page to purchase tickets as the date approaches.
Cocktail attire suggested. We are excited to announce that this year’s theme will be Pucci (Resort clothing that embodies the beach’s natural beauty and refreshingly bright colors. Includes abstract, bold and bright designs with colors such as yellow, pink, purple, blue and green. Think retro Lilly Pulitzer-type attire.).
For event inquiries or in-kind donations, please contact Gracie@jaxbeam.org or 904-241-7437 x2.

Help #StampOutHunger this Saturday (May 12th)—place a bag (or bags) of non-perishable food for your letter carrier to take to a local food pantry, including our Beaches Community Food Bank. Help support BEAM’s food pantries by participating in America’s largest one-day food drive!
National wear red day is a day to spread awareness about heart health! Come by our 7north location this Friday to join in the festivities. Our registered dietitian will be doing blood pressure screenings and food tastings (and of course there will be plenty of red clothing to choose from!).
BEAM's registered dietitian will be hosting a food security continuing education event for First Coast Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
Join FCAND as we learn from Dr. Lauri Wright about the role of the Registered Dietitian in food insecurity. Afterwards, we have fun organizing the donated food for those in need.
