LOA remains operational delivering our services even though we are closed to the public.
Covid-19 Update
The LOA is working tirelessly to get emergency food bags in the homes of our seniors. The food pantry remains fluid in that we get the food out almost as fast as it comes in. We will continue to be in need of food donations and donations of paper products in order to get it out to the most vulnerable clients. We are in need of:
  • Canned soups
  • Canned fruits/applesauce
  • Canned vegetables
  • Canned meat
  • Peanut Butter
  • Oatmeal
  • Cereal bars
  • Carnation Instant Breakfast
  • Ramen Noodles
  • Pastas
  • Crackers
  • Toilet Paper
  • Tissues
  • Paper Towels

In an effort to continue providing services in a safe and effective manner, the LOA also needs:
  • face masks
  • gloves
  • hand sanitizer
  • wipes
  • hand soap
  • plastic grocery bags

Items can be dropped off at our central office (4932 Frontage Road, NW, Roanoke) between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
Monetary donations to purchase these items can be mailed to our office (PO Box 14205, Roanoke, Va 24038) or submitted electronically with the link below.
Covid- 19 Emergency Support
On behalf of the seniors we serve we are so appreciative of the support from our community!
Our partners at Feeding America Southwest Virginia sent 108 food boxes for the neediest of our clients and Cox Communications gave us a donation so that our staff could immediately go shopping and fill our food pantry with food and other supplies. We continue to get emergency food bags out as fast as we can! Immense thanks to our wonderful staff and volunteers for their amazing efforts to serve this vulnerable population. We appreciate those individuals who have stopped by with donations. We are humbled, indeed.
