Students from Heart for Children, an afterschool program for underprivileged children living in Jacksonville’s Eastside neighborhood near JAXPORT, celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday today with a party aboard the port’s Carnival Cruise Ship Elation.

The children were treated to a special story time complete with character appearances and a balloon drop from the ship’s atrium.

As part of the cruise line’s community outreach program, representatives from Carnival presented Heart for Children with a $5,000 donation.

The program also receives regular support from JAXPORT.

Carnival Elation offers Seuss-themed on board activities for families and sails out of JAXPORT year-round.
