Dr. Seuss birthday celebration at JAXPORT

March 2, 2017

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.
