•  Soup for SCV Seniors Food Drive - When mobility, energy and resources are limited, it becomes especially difficult to fix yourself something tasty and nutritious to eat. That's why convenient cans of soup are such a blessing to many SCV seniors; they can make a hot, healthy bowl quickly and easily. The next time you're at the grocery store, could you put a few extra cans of soup in the cart for a senior in need? Or maybe your kids can share holiday greetings while collecting soup from neighbors. Once you're "canned," take your donations to Visiting Angels now through January 15th. (Special thanks to Camelot Moving & Storage for delivering all that soup to its final destination, too!). Call to arrange a donation time.
