Souper Bowl of Caring
The Starkdale Youth ministry put on a "Souper Bowl of Caring" event and collected $400 and canned and dry goods for the Urban Mission Ministry here in Steubenville. High school students Gabrielle Peterson (photo, left) and Miranda Parkinson from Catholic Central HS did a wonderful job coordinating this event which took place Sunday Feb 1st.
More than 20 years ago, the Souper Bowl of Caring began 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 $90 million has been raised for local charities across the country through Souper Bowl of Caring. It has become a powerful movement that is transforming the time around Super Bowl weekend into the nation’s largest celebration of giving and serving.
Through this mission, young people learn what it’s like to make a positive difference in the world – as they collect food, raise money and volunteer to work in charities that provide shelter to the homeless, food to the hungry and compassion to those in need.
