Souper Bowl of Caring
Sunday, February 4 (Super Bowl Sunday) | 11:00 am Service
“As we enjoy the Super Bowl football game, help us be mindful of those who are without a bowl of soup to eat.”On Super Bowl Sunday in 1990, a simple prayer inspired a group of teenagers to create a fun, yet meaningful way to fight hunger and reach out to those in need. Using originality and teamwork, the young people invited their friends at twenty-one other churches to join them in collecting donations in soup pots. The collaborative effort raised $5,700 and the youth donated every penny to local charities. Today, the Souper Bowl of Caring is a collaboration of NFL teams, congregations, schools and compassionate individuals caring for others on Super Bowl weekend. More than $110 million has been generated, and 100% of all donations go directly to food banks, soup kitchens and other charities across the country. Souper Bowl of Caring continues to bring people together to help those in need across the country, while transforming Super Bowl weekend into the nation’s largest youth-led weekend of giving and serving. There are many opportunities to lead, serve and encourage others through the Souper Bowl of Caring. Learn more at www.souperbowl.org.
