Strikers and GoochlandCares to Hold 4th Annual Food Drive April 21st & 22nd

The Richmond Strikers in partnership with the newly rebranded GoochlandCares Free Clinic and Family Services are proud to announce that we will be hosting the fourth annual Food Drive on April 21st & 22nd!

On Saturday and Sunday, April 21-22, donation bins will be located at Striker Park and West Creek Complex to collect canned goods and other non-perishable items in hope of raising over 1,000 pounds of donations for the GoochlandCares Food Pantry! With every pound donated, the Richmond Strikers will be donating $1 to GoochlandCares! View the image below to see a list of items that GoochlandCares are looking for! 


The GoochlandCares Food Pantry is a place where over 600 Goochland neighbors shop for over 5,000 food items. The poverty rate is 7.4% in Goochland and over 160 children weekly depend on the food provided by the GoochlandCares Food Pantry. In Western Goochland, there is not a grocery store located within 13 miles of their homes.

Last year, Strikers collected 467 pounds over the two days. This year we are looking to double that and reach 1,000 pounds! In addition to the donation days on Saturday and Sunday, Strikers will continue to have a donation bin located at our office at 4202D Park Place Court, Glen Allen 23060.
