How to help the Refugees settling in Jacksonville
"Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
Emma Lazarus, November 2, 1883
PSMJax connects those who have with those who need.

PSMJax is a participant in the UNF School of Computing Partnership Opportunity.
Dr. Karthikeyan Umapathy and The University of North Florida (UNF) School of Computing partner with nonprofit organizations with software/Web application system projects for a senior computing course project, a two-semester course on software systems development. Students learn and employ software development processes and design and develop a prototype information system in collaboration with a community partner.
The class is working with the Clothing with Purpose program to build an online inventory ordering system. Partner agencies will have the ability to put in online orders, making communication more efficient and accurate.

We have launched a Sponsor a Box program “Give $20 Clothe 20” as a way to get more support for our Clothing with Purpose program. We have provided clothing donations to various agencies, nonprofit organizations, churches, and individuals within the United States and abroad. There is still a great need in this area and we are looking for you to partner with us. By becoming a PSM Sustainer with your monthly donation of $20, you will be clothing 20 people.
