The youth of First Presbyterian Church will hold soup pots at church doors on Souper Bowl of Caring Sunday, February 2, 2014. They will join young people in churches across the country to collect money for those who are hungry and hurting.
In 2013, $7.47 million was collected by Souper Bowl of Caring participants for local charities. All of the money collected is donated to a charity selected by the participant – none of the money is sent to the Souper Bowl of Caring headquarters. Organizers only ask that each participant report their collection so national totals can be determined and announced. All money raised this year will go to support the Backpack Project of First Presbyterian Church.
Since the Souper Bowl of Caring began in 1990, more than $98 million has gone to help people in need. Please support the youth of our church in this effort to “love our neighbors” by dropping your dollar in the soup pot on February 2.
