Souper Bowl of Caring 2019 Report

Souper Bowl Cash for Web

Thank You to all who Donated

We had a successful collection of donations for the 2019 Souper Bowl of Caring and Food Drive in February.  The LYO made the goal of $700.00 to give to the A.M.E.N. Food Pantry in La Grange (our county seat).  With the final donations in the past week we were able to meet that goal.  Here is a link to the office Souper Bowl of Caring web site.

Added to that were the in kind donations of food and other needed items for the food pantry.  Approximately 60 items were also collected at MLLC in February and then brought to the food Pantry.  We are very thankful for the wonderful partnership we have in the congregation as we seek to love our neighbors.

Here is the report on the Souper Bowl of Caring official web site:  click link.

Again, thank you for your partnership and support of this annual event at MLLC.

Here is the Mission and Vision of the national Souper Bowl of Caring ministry:

Mission / Vision Statement

Mission Statement

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.

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
