Churches collecting soup

January 23, 2008

The Sedalia Community Soup Drive, sponsored by the Pettis County Ministerial Alliance and the Sedalia Blue Ribbon Vision, is taking place until Feb. 4.

During these next days, people may buy soup and take it to a church or drop it off at Open Door Food pantry at 111 W. Sixth St. The Democrat office, 700 S. Massachusetts Ave., is a collection point.

Soup left at the churches will be taken to Open Door.

The soup will go to families served by Open Door. A goal of 12,000 cans of soup has been set.
