Goochland Christmas Mother Food Drive

Tis’ the Season for Giving! GHS is collecting canned food for the Goochland Christmas Mother from November 14th - November 22nd. We are asking for canned goods and peanut butter but we will take any non-perishable food that you have to offer. We cannot accept food that is in glass containers. Food can be turned into your child's Day 2 Block 1 teacher. This year there are so many in our community who are struggling to pay bills and keep food on the table. Be a Christmas Angel and help those in need. Thank you
