At Live Oak Contracting, we believe in giving back to the community that has given us so much. Our team members express their passion for Jacksonville through our many volunteer events throughout the year. We are committed to making a difference through our holiday toy drives and partnerships with the Jaguars Foundation, Greenscape of Jacksonville, the Monique Burr Foundation, and many more.
Live Oak Contracting is truly blessed to have the opportunity to share our time and treasure with our neighborhood friends.
The Monique Burr Foundation for Children
The Monique Burr Foundation for Children seeks to empower students of all ages through education to speak up when they witness abuse, whether online, emotional, or physical. The Monique Burr Foundation for Children was founded in 1997 by Edward Burr on the first anniversary of his wife’s death to continue her passion of advocating for children. The foundation has trained over 2,600 facilitators that implement prevention education programs across Florida and the United States, reaching nearly 2 million students across Florida and the entire United States.
Club Blue is a division of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Northeast Florida that connects young professionals who desire to help shape the lives of kids who participate in local Boys & Girls Clubs through leadership, volunteerism, and advocacy.

Through donation-based scholarships, the JCC works to ensure that every child who wishes to participate can do so regardless of their ability to afford tuition.
