Heart of Gold – Anthony Stinson

Anthony Stinson lost his 20-year-old son due to the unnecessary violence in Northeast Florida.  He was killed as many of our young people have been while they were simply visiting a family member.  How senseless.

Since that day, Anthony made a commitment to do all he could to guide and protect the children in our community.  He created the Anthony J. Stinson Jr. Association for Change in memory of his son.  His target is our youth in the most violent areas of Jacksonville, giving them a safe environment to learn, play and create a connection within the community.  He provides mentoring programs, dress for success events and field trips for these kids.

Three Grains of Rice Missions is honored to recognize Anthony with the Golden Heart Award for his amazing heart, passion and commitment to the well-being of our young people.  He also received dinner for two at Terra Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse.

We want to thank Adrian Bayo with Terra Gaucha for providing the gift certificate.  We appreciate your support of Three Grains of Rice Missions and the Anthony J. Stinson Jr. Association for Change non-profit.
