Why We Need Your Help

The Williamsburg-James City Community Action Agency (WJCAA) is a 501(c)(3) private, non-profit corporation, which relies on the generous support of individuals, corporations, foundations, churches and civic associations in order to serve those in need in our service area. While we do receive government funding, we must also seek support from private sources. Contributions can be financial or in the form of donated (“in-kind”) goods or services. All contributions to WJCCAA are tax deductible. Special state tax credits are also available for certain types of corporate gifts.

How Your Church, School or Civic Group Can Help

Churches, schools,  and civic organizations can provide much-needed assistance to our four emergency shelters serving homeless families and individuals:

  •  Host a collection for one month. Collect food and household supplies for use at shelters. Click here for a list of needed items.
  • Hold a Penny Drive. Provide jars or cans (we’ll provide the labels) for collecting pennies. Set a goal or a time limit and then donate the “Change for a Change” to WJCCAA..
