BOUQUETS TO ABILITY HOUSING OF NORTHEAST FLORIDA  The nonprofit, which is focused on providing permanent supportive housing to homeless individuals, has raised 75 percent of funds needed to provide move-in kits (which include bed linens, kitchenware, bathroom supplies, household care and cleaning items, and personal care items) to residents of Ability’s newest community, Village on Wiley on Jacksonville’s Westside. Ability is accepting donations through Aug. 30 at www.crowdrise.com/move-in-kit.

BRICKBATS TO THE FLORIDA TIMES UNION  For the second time in just over three months, the news outlet has earned notoriety not for its reporting, but for an ill-placed advertisement.

BOUQUETS TO MARSHALL THOMPSON AND SHAYNA BELL  As reported by The News Leader, both Yulee High School students were recognized for their leadership potential. Thompson was chosen to attend the Congress of Future Science and Technology Leaders in Boston and Bell’s public-speaking skills earned her a trip to the Future Business Leaders of America’s national conference in Chicago.
