GoochlandCares offers a number of unique ways to give during holidays season

  • 0

Do you enjoy the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping? Or do you prefer to shop from your sofa? Either way, there are creative ways to help neighbors in need, especially now.

The team at GoochlandCares recently offered several helpful suggestions:

Do you have HSA/FSA funds that expire at the end of the year? Use your funds to buy critically needed supplies and donate them to GoochlandCares or another nonprofit. The CARES Act expanded the list of items that qualify for pre-tax purchasing. Current needs at GoochlandCares include allergy and asthma medications, over-the-counter pain medications, feminine hygiene and dental hygiene products, first aid supplies, and vitamins. For a list of eligible products go to:

Check out our Amazon Wishlist at Have purchases shipped directly to GoochlandCares. And remember to use AmazonSmile. You shop and we receive a donation from Amazon--it’s that easy!

Turn your holiday food purchases into donations. Sign up for Kroger Community Rewards and select GoochlandCares as your nonprofit.

Consider adding a few items to your “nice” list to donate to GoochlandCares. The Food Pantry is always in need of non-perishable staples like soup, cereal and rice. The Clothes Closet needs new underwear and new socks (all sizes), and sheets and towels.

Thank you for making a difference in our community and in the lives of the most vulnerable among us.

GoochlandCares is a private, 501(c)(3), non-profit organization that provides basic human services and health care to Goochland residents in need. For more information, visit or contact Adair Frayser, or (804) 556-0301.
