Dickies Seafood, based in Richmond, is back and better than ever after a fire devastated their facility in 2020. We are thrilled that JRA has been selected as their charity beneficiary to receive a portion of sales for the coming year, up to ten thousand dollars! It’s a duo as natural as shrimp and cocktail sauce, given the company’s commitment to sustainability. Head to dickiesrva.com for a list of where you can find their delicious products, and read more about their eco-friendly practices.
Tokens for Bags®
We are happy to announce that we have been selected as a recipient of the Buffalo Exchange Tokens for Bags® program from July through December 2021! You can now donate to JRA just by shopping at the Buffalo Exchange in Richmond. Instead of a plastic bag, the Tokens for Bags® program offers every customer who makes a purchase one “token” valued at five cents (the cost to produce a bag) to donate to one of several local charities selected by the store. The program has generated over $857,745 for hundreds of local nonprofit organizations since 1994 and has saved over 17.1 million plastic bags from the landfill.

Sturgeon is an eco friendly apparel and board manufacturer. Stories passed down through Virginia’s Pamunkey Indian tribe told of children riding a sturgeon as a rite of passage. They were fearless and true pioneers of their time. We still live on this adrenaline and grit- a need to be a part of the water. So whether you are paddleboarding down the James or surfing hurricanes in the Atlantic, “Ride a sturgeon and #EarnYourRiteofPassage” or just grab a tee. We’ll see you out there!
