And as the Jaguars worked on field, “Hit the Sack,” the Jaguars/Ashley HomeStore program donated a bed for every sack made during the season. Since the program’s inception, Ashley HomeStore in Jacksonville has provided more than 1,000 free beds to First Coast children contributing to over 40,000 beds nationally.
