HOT SHOT: Senior Center Presents Big Check to South County Food Pantry
The South County Senior Center in Edgewater is the base of operations for the Show Stoppers, a talented group of women who perform at the center as well as other senior centers, nursing homes and care facilities. They dance, sing, tap, belly dance and more. All of the women in the troupe are 55 or older, and they have been performing together for years.
At each of their performances, they take contributions and raise money for a cause. In November and December, their cause was the South County Assistance Network (SCAN), a food pantry that services families in South County. The South River Source profiled the work of SCAN earlier this month in a story you can find here.
The ShowStoppers raised a whopping $1772 and presented a checkin that amount to Doug Anderson of Lothian, who represented SCAN at the check ceremony.

During Harvest for the Hungry in October, we were told that each $1 contribution can buy about eight pounds of food. If that holds true, the ShowStoppers raised enough to purchase about 14,000 pounds of food.
Way to go ladies!
