On October 20th, Goochland County Executive Leadership gathered for a day of professional development and teambuilding. At the conclusion of the retreat, the leadership team engaged in the “Bikes Team Building Challenge”.
As a result of this challenge, the leadership team successfully built and donated six bicycles to GoochlandCares.
GoochlandCares, a local non-profit organization, has been providing support for neighbors in need since 1952. Their mission focuses on ensuring that everyone has access to basic human services and health care. While bicycles are occasionally donated, they do not last long. Adair Frayser, Director of Development for GoochlandCares, said, “The County’s donation will make six kids extremely happy on Christmas morning.”
Frayser continued, “Thank you to Goochland County for continuing to support GoochlandCares. It is wonderful to live in a County where neighbors are helping neighbors.” Currently, GoochlandCares serves over 2,500 neighbors in need, including 225 families that shop weekly at the Food Pantry. Frayser said their clients are looking for basic needs such as sheets, blankets, socks, and underwear.
GoochlandCares is always seeking partners for their mission. Anyone interested in donating, volunteering, or becoming a partner, should contact GoochlandCares at 804-556-6260.
