SOUPER BOWL OF CARING Sunday

SOUPER BOWL OF CARING


Our Church youth will once again be participating in the “Souper Bowl of Caring” project on February
1st, 2015. This project asks people across the country to help fight hunger and poverty in our local community. After
each liturgy on the 1st, we are asking you to help them out by:

  •  bringing a can or 2 of soup
  •  purchase homemade soup prepared by one of your youth members (some ideas for the menu: *Creamy Tomato–n-Cheese, *Football Chili,
    *Mushroom, *Sausage Spinache)
  • donating monies
    Soup cans, donations and soup sale proceeds will be given to the Charity of each parish’s choice to help stock their shelves and provide nourishment to local families in need. After your donations are counted, you can report them to add to the nationwide total calculating the amount of food and monies collected across the country that day. Won’t you help us help families less fortunate than us? Web-site for the event is http://www.souperbowl.org.
    Homemade soups can be sold in soup to-go containers for $2.00 each.

Vision Statement

Transform the time around the Super Bowl into the nation’s largest celebration of giving and serving.

We believe:

  • The idea for Souper Bowl of Caring is a gift from God
  • Young people have the ability to serve and should be given opportunities to lead their communities in helping others
  • Every dollar collected through Souper Bowl of Caring should be donated directly to a charity selected by each participating group
  • People of all backgrounds and beliefs can work together
  • Hunger and poverty have a negative impact on individuals and the communities in which they live, yet there is joy in serving and giving to those in need
  • The excitement and energy surrounding the Super Bowl can be used to engage young people in service while producing lasting hope for all people

How do I register for Souper Bowl of Caring?

It’s simple! Click here to register online.

Why do I need to register?

Registered participants receive a packet of FREE resources in the mail, including posters to promote your event, a soup pot sticker, guidelines for holding a successful collection and bulletins and flyers for your event. Your registration gives you a profile page which connects you and your team with each other and with participants of Souper Bowl of Caring in all 50 states. Registering also makes it easy to report your collection and add your team’s success to the national total.

What do I do after my Souper Bowl of Caring event?

1) Report your collection amount to Souper Bowl of Caring. Your total will be added to all of the other collections across the country so a national total can be reported to the media!
2) Donate 100% of your collection directly to the charity of your choice. Present the certificate that came with your free resource materials to your receiving charity.

Why do I need to report my totals?

Your collection, whether large or small, is important. One of the joys of participating in Souper Bowl of Caring is being part of the cumulative effort of thousands of organizations across the country working together to fight hunger and poverty. Our efforts added together are making a huge impact!

Where do I order Souper Bowl of Caring t-shirts and other materials?

We sell lots of different things at our online store. We accept both check and credit card payments. Please allow two weeks for delivery.
One of the core values of Souper Bowl of Caring is that every dollar or food item collected during Souper Bowl of Caring should be donated directly to a charity selected by each participating group. Encouraging the young people in your group to decide where the money/food will go allows them to not only be involved in the collection, but also be responsible for putting those donations back to work in the community. Your group is responsible for delivering 100% of your Souper Bowl of Caring collection directly to your designated charity after the event.
As the leader of your local Souper Bowl of Caring activity, it is an important to select the charity that will receive your SBoC collection early in your planning process.
