Souper Bowl of Caring

posted Jan 17, 2017, 5:06 PM by Stan Suther   [ updated Jan 17, 2017, 5:14 PM ]

Our LYNCs groups are proud to announce that we are participating in the 2016 Souper Bowl of Caring! Souper Bowl of Caring uses the energy around our nation’s largest sporting event to mobilize and inspire youth to fight hunger and poverty. Students across the country will develop stronger connection to their communities as they collect food and raise money for charities that provide shelter to the homeless, food to the hungry, and compassion to those in need. After each service on February 5, our LYNCs will take up a collection and give 100% of donations to the Mooresville Soup Kitchen. We will report our total to Souper Bowl of Caring so our youth groups become part of the national efforts. Through this experience, they learn the power of working together to make a difference in the lives of others. Help us make a difference this year by simply dropping a dollar into a soup pot on Sunday, February 5. Thank you in advance for helping to make our inaugural participation in Souper Bowl of Caring a success!
