Back in September, Elizabeth Moore was looking for a do-gooder project for her daughter’s Brownie troop in Southwest Roanoke County.
She wanted to know the kickoff date for Soup for Seniors, the ad hoc fall food collection campaign run out of a small suite of offices in Melrose Towers on Orange Avenue. It launched in 2007.
The bad news back then was that the program wouldn’t happen in 2011. That was because of some personnel and other changes at the LOA Area Office on Aging.
Today’s good news is that Soup for Seniors is cooking again.
The LOA has adopted it as an agency-wide public service to low-income elderly.
It will take place later this month, from Jan. 23 to 28, and its reach has expanded to Alleghany County and the city of Covington as well.
