The Lutheran Youth Organization (LYO) of Martin Luther Lutheran Church (MLLC) had the greatest year ever for the Souper Bowl of Caring. After a final accounting of all gifts given our grand total is $907.00. That means we will be giving $453.50 to each of our chosen local hunger relief charities.
$453.50 will be given to Fishes & Loaves in western Washington County, Texas.
$453.50 will be given to A.M.E.N. (Area Ministries for Emergency Needs) in La Grange, the county seat of our own Fayette County, Texas.
With these donations we can help these hunger relief agencies purchase food items to alleviate hunger in our community.
MLLC is in Carmine, Texas, which is at the Northeast corner of Fayette County. Fishes & Loaves and A.M.E.N. serve the areas closest to Carmine. Our ongoing support of these two agencies is in line with the mission of the national Souper Bowl of Caring. The mission statement is: “Using the energy of the Super Bowl to mobilize youth in a united national effort to care for people in their local communities who are hungry and those in need.”
This is a growing ministry of MLLC. Here is the growth of the giving over the past few years:
In 2010 we collected $156.17.
In 2011 we collected $176.35
In 2012 we collected $233.00
In 2013 we collected $637.74
In 2014 we collected $907.00
