ET_5Day_August_Web

Sunday, August 18th we will be donating 5% of our sales to the Friends Association for Children.

Friends Association for Children is a non-profit child and family agency that has served the Central Virginia community for over 140 years. Friends began in 1871 as an orphanage in historic Jackson Ward. Today, it operates two multi-service child development centers in Richmond.

Currently Friends serves nearly 1,000 children, ages six weeks to 17 years of age, with a broad array of services. Through these services, children gain critical literacy and developmental skills needed to succeed in school and in life. Additionally, children achieve a greater understanding an appreciation of their community and the world around them.

The mission of Friends is to help children and families achieve their potential and become productive citizens.
