Each year, COMTO Chapters are encouraged to select one week in November to host COMTO Week activities with the aim of increasing Membership and multiplying the number of organizations, companies, and individuals from all modes of transportation that join COMTO.
Garrett A. Morgan (Shadow Day Program)
The Garrett A. Morgan Shadow Day Program was developed under the Clinton administration by Rodney E. Slater, former Secretary to the US Department of Transportation. The program is designed to educate students in grades K-12 about career opportunities in transportation. Garrett A. Morgan Shadow Days take place on any day during the month of February, in observance of Black History Month.
Senior Community Outreach & Holiday Giving
In the spirit of giving each year during the holiday season, the Chapter partners with local senior communities to present gifts to residents that may not otherwise receive gifts. All contributions go directly to the purchase of items from their personalized wish list.
Thank you in advance for helping the Jacksonville Chapter make an impact in the community.
