MSS packing

MSS volunteer

Micah’s Soup for Seniors welcomes volunteers to pack and deliver food on a monthly basis throughout the year. Monthly packing takes place at St. Michael’s Lutheran Church, located at 2308 Merrimac Rd. in Blacksburg. The fourth Tuesday of the month we pack bags from 5:00 pm to 5:30 pm. Individuals or groups/clubs (who create their own rotating schedule of 2 volunteers ) gather to provide food for 144 residents located in the Warm Hearth community.
If you are interested in these volunteer opportunities please contact Dianne.
