Little black dresses helping fight poverty in Roanoke

(Junior League of Roanoke Valley)

ROANOKE, Va. (WSET) -- Can a little black dress help to fight poverty?

The Junior League of Roanoke Valley sure hopes so.

For the next week, members of the nonprofit will be wearing the same black dress to bring awareness about poverty and its affect on women.

They will also be gathering donations that will go toward addressing poverty as well as helping the community find resources to find healthcare and food.
