Who We Are
The Salaam Club of Florida was founded in Jacksonville, FL in 1912 by proud Americans of Syrian and Lebanese descent. Their mission was to embrace the United States with their assimilation and allegiance, because America provided them and their future generations a new life of hope: a hope founded upon principles of freedom, equality and opportunity. Our club honors our mutual heritage by gathering together for social, charitable and cultural events. We offer a full slate of activities for families, young adults and those who are young at heart. We are on our 5th generation!
What We Believe
The Salaam Club is an organization which combines our Americanism with the culture of Syria and Lebanon: strong traditions of belief in God, sense of family, love of heritage and willingness to serve each other. We believe life is better lived together. The Salaam Club recognizes the diverse religious and political beliefs of its members and therefore does not promote or foster any sectarian, religious or political movements.
School Supply Collection
The Salaam Club will continue its annual school supply drive for Syrian refugee families in Jacksonville. Please bring new/unused school supplies to the Steak Supper on August 12th. Suggestions include: pens, pencils, crayons, markers, notebook paper, folders, notebooks/binders, calculators, spiral notebooks, glue sticks, or colored pencils
