Morocco Shriners are extremely proud of their past. Founded in 1888 and the "mother" chapter for all Shrine Units in Florida, Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina; Morocco Shrine has a bright history of contributions to crippled and burned in children as well as civic involvement in our community.

The first record of community service was on July 17, 1889. Jacksonville's yellow fever epidemic claimed 427 of the approximately 20,000 residents and the Morocco Shriners organized themselves into a relief corps, displaying the beauties of love and affection to all the suffering, irrespective of race, creed, or affiliation. This was the first major charity ever undertaken by the Shrine of North America.

Morocco Shriners jurisdiction today extends throughout seventeen northeast Florida counties and is now the 13th largest of the 191 chapters in the metropolitan areas of North America. Morocco Shrine's 6,200 members contribute and raise funds to support the 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children that provide specialized care for children with orthopeadic problems, spinal cord and burns injuries at no- cost to the families.

Some of the noteworthy civic contributions of Morocco Shriners include; 5 Florida Governors, 10 Jacksonville Mayors, 12 Jacksonville Chamber Of Commerce Presidents, and 17 Gator Bowl Presidents.

Morocco has been blessed with outstanding leadership from the cream of Florida citizenry. The heritage at Morocco is a great one, and the Shriners of today will continue charting the successful destiny of fraternalism and civic responsibility just as our predecessors did One Hundred And Fourteen Years ago.
