Well, the Steelers may have lost the Superbowl, but the day wasn't a complete failure. Across the country, churches were participating in the Souperbowl of Caring. It's a national movement to collect donations for local food pantries on Superbowl Sunday. Pretty cool, huh?
The Youth Group of Shadyside Presbyterian Church was one such church doing their part to tackle hunger on game day. Their donation recipient? EECM, of course! The Souperbowl collection raised $482.86 for our Hunger Programs.
Which is awesome.
What's even more awesome is that these funds will be included in our Have a Heart for Hunger campaign and will be matched by our anonymous donor. The youth group's efforts will result in $965 being donated to our Food Pantry, Soup Kitchen, and Meals on Wheels.
There's just one word for it: SOUPER!!!
