This year, James Center is bringing awareness to Greater Richmond SCAN (Stop Child Abuse Now). SCAN will be at Grand Illumination collecting toys for 200 Richmond area children. During the holiday season, these children will be coming to James Center so their parents or guardians can “shop” for gifts. Please bring unwrapped gifts for children ages 0-17 to the collection sleigh located in the lobby of One James Center before December 7.
After the Grand Illumination, head over to Kanawha Plaza for a continued “Illumination Celebration!” Carry on the holiday cheer with music, food, kettle corn, hot chocolate and other various entertainment! Festivities will begin at 7:00 p.m., just a block away from the James Center.
