Rooftop puts end to long waits

-A A +A
By April Wright, Reporter

Dozens of locals who are feeling the heavy blow of the economy have been sleeping overnight on Mondays in the cold air at the front steps of Rooftop of Virginia, hoping to be one of 10 clients each week to acquire emergency assistance funds to pay rent, water or electric bills or purchase fuel to heat their home.

On Monday mornings, before the doors open at 8 a.m., 60 people who have fallen below the poverty line are already waiting outside of Rooftop's office on North Main Street in downtown Galax.
