Inspired by our children’s love for the beautiful game of chess, Chess for Charity Jax serves the community through the generosity of our members. We collect non-perishable food items during our free classes and free rated chess tournaments and donate that food to local food banks. Our chess instructors and tournament directors are a group of volunteers that donate their time and knowledge to help further chess in Northeast Florida. Please come and experience what we offer and if you can, bring a non-perishable food item because like in chess, EVERY PIECE COUNTS! ************************************************************** ♟JOIN OUR GROUP! ************************************************************** https://www.facebook.com/groups/chessforcharityjax/ **************************************************************
