Wayne Vaughan is Sales Manager at Promotional Considerations, a VRPS Commercial Member that recently relocated to the City of Richmond.  Wayne contacted Jim Stutts, VRPS Executive Director, because he had two-dozen middle school soccer jerseys available for donation.  The high quality jerseys had been mislabeled when printed, and both Wayne and Promotional Considerations wanted to make them available to a youth group.

On Friday, July 26, 2013, Wayne and Promotional Considerations donated the jerseys to the City of Richmond Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities via Charles Hester, 1998 VRPS President and current VRPS Foundation Board member.  Thanks to Promotional Considerations for their donation and exemplifying the mission of VRPS:
