Rice Rivers Center part of Ellwood Thompson's Wooden Nickel Program

June 30, 2017

VCU Rice Rivers Center is excited to be one of two nonprofits to benefit from Ellwood Thompson's Wooden Nickel Program during the months of July, August and September. 

When you shop at Ellwood's and use resuable shopping bags, you will be offered ten cents for every bag or two wooden nickels. The wooden nickels can be deposited in a glass jar designated for Rice Rivers Center.  At then end of the quarter, the wooden nickels donated will represent real nickels for Rice Rivers Center.   

Ellwood Thompson's is a local market with strong roots in the Richmond community. Learn more about the Wooden Nickel Program.
