Salem Red Sox provide free meals to those in need in Roanoke

Coronavirus

ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — The Salem Red Sox gave back to the community Monday, extending their partnership with Bojangles to provide meals in Roanoke.

Mugsy and the Sox donated boxed meals at the Total Action for Progress (TAP) office before heading over to the Community Solutions Center to partner with Feeding Southwest Virginia.

Around 100 free lunches were distributed and the Salem Red Sox plan to continue giving out meals in the future.

“This is actually something we’re looking at continuing with Bojangles weekly, as long as there’s a need we’re going to do it,” vice president of corporate partnerships Steven Elovich said.

The free meals are part of an ongoing effort to help the area during the pandemic. The team has raised over $1,700 for local non-profits during its “I Miss Baseball” campaign. The Sox have also given free meals to frontline workers and healthcare professionals during the weekends.
