Who are the Shriners?
Shriners are men who believe in God, support their Country, and chose to live a lifestyle that promotes fun, fellowship, integrity, and the masonic principles of brotherly love, relief, and truth. Acca Shriners are centered here in Richmond, Virginia; however, our membership stretches far and wide, including as far west as the valley, east into the northern neck, south towards the state line, and north to Fredericksburg. We are geographically dispersed while united in our primary purpose: supporting the Shriners Hospitals for Children system.
With 22 Hospitals across North America supported by nearly 200 Shrine Centers, children have been receiving life-saving and life-altering care specifically tailored to the tender heart for almost 100 years. Shriners Hospitals for Children feature world-class research and medical professionals who care deeply for our burned and crippled children. Ask any Shriner when they feel the tallest, and they will say when they stoop to help a child. We are Shriners. Join us!.

Acca Transportation Fund
Acca Shriners is proud to have a transportation program that transports our children and their families to and from our Hospitals in Cincinnati, Greenville, and Philadelphia. This program needs your help. Please consider volunteering as a driver, donating to the transportation fund, or donating to the van fund which will be used to purchase a replacement van soon.
