Sales Angels is an all volunteer, 5 year old 501c3 non-profit located in Richmond Virginia specializing in outstanding River experiences for at-risk youth. Our volunteers regularly Patrol the James River and collect debris.
Sails Angels is dedicated to getting people out on the James River. We have an assortment of safe, small watercraft available for use by our volunteers and clients. Our activities provide participants with a unique exposure to the the James River, its wildlife, its history and current environmental condition.Volunteers are always close at hand to provide guidance, safety and interpretation.
2016 has surpassed previous seasons.We have expanded our client base to include the US Navy, University of Richmond , local camps, tourists and church groups. Our main focus this season, however, has been with the Big Brothers Big Sisters program in Richmond.
"So far we have gone canoe sailing, kayaking, swimming in the river and paddle boarding. We could not have asked for better experiences and plan to continue going back to learn more about the James River."
"Sails Angels taught us about the rich history along the river and in Richmond - about original explorers, early settlements, civil war battles, and old factories - all while keeping us engaged through activities. Sails Angels helps the community with a big heart and warm welcome to the river, and we can't wait to come back and explore some of the other activities they provide."
"As a Big Sister with Big Brothers Big Sisters, I greatly appreciate the opportunities offered to my little and me through this great organization. We had the pleasure of spending a few hours with Tom learning about Richmond and nature while canoeing on the James. My little and I felt safe and learned a great deal about the area."
"If you are looking for a hands-on way to get your family involved in cleaning up and learning a TON about the James River and her history, this is the group for you! We always leave wanting to come back as soon as possible."
