Thanks to you and the leadership of our youth, Vine Street’s recent Souper Bowl of Caring campaign raised more than $736!
All funds will benefit the Society of St. Andrew. According to the Society, every dollar we raised will put 50 servings of healthy, nourishing food on the plates of children, women and men at greatest risk for hunger in this country. Doing the math… more than 36,000 meals will be made available through this collection. Now there’s a winning score!
Souper Bowl of Caring began 25 years ago with a simple prayer from a single youth group: “Lord, even as we enjoy the Super Bowl football game, help us be mindful of those without a bowl of soup to eat.” Since that day, more than $100 million has been raised for local charities across the country through the Souper Bowl of Caring. It has become a powerful movement that is transforming some of the extravagance surrounding Super Bowl weekend into the nation’s largest celebration of giving and serving.
During the 14 years Vine Street has participated in Souper Bowl of Caring, the church has donated more than $8,700 and nearly 600 food items. So what has a bigger impact than a trio of 300-pound linebackers going after a quarterback? We do! On to next season!
