It’s that time of year again! The LOA, in partnership with AARP Virginia, is again collecting soup and other non perishables to distribute to over 3,500 seniors in need this winter. And we need your help to do it.
Volunteers play a vital role in this project and it cannot be done without your help. Volunteers are needed in varying capacities. They include:
- · People at collection sites to check dates and sort the soup as well as work in an assembly line format putting the donated soup and crackers into the bags, getting them ready for delivery.
- · People to deliver those bags to the Meals on Wheels sites, Diners Club sites, senior independent living centers, etc. (This is a HUGE need). In some cases, we will need volunteers to deliver to the home.
- · Volunteers to pick up soup at the drop off locations and bring to our main collection site.
Help is needed Monday, February 4 – Monday, February 11. Our main collection site this year is again the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul, 4909 North Lake Drive, Roanoke. This is where volunteers will assemble to check dates, sort the soup and bag. We are partnering with Freedom First Credit Union, Bank of Fincastle and Vistar. It is from these locations that we need soup picked up and brought to the church.
If you can help this year with any of these endeavors, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 540-345-0451. You can also sign up online at:
