In 1990, a simple prayer: “Lord, even as we enjoy the Super Bowl football game, help us be mindful of those who are without a bowl of soup to eat” was delivered to a small youth group at Spring Valley Presbyterian Church in Columbia, SC led by Brad Smith, who was serving as a seminary intern at the time.
This gave birth to an idea. Why not harness the energy and enthusiasm of Super Bowl weekend, a time when people come together for football, food and fun, to unite the nation for a higher good? Individuals and groups could collect dollars in soup pots and canned food for those in need and send every dollar and food donation DIRECTLY to a local charity of THEIR choice.
We at Trinity will be collecting non-perishable food donations and monetary donations to benefit The Care Cupboard Food Pantry at First United Methodist Church of Bunnell.
If you are able we ask that you bring at least one non-perishable food item and one dollar this Sunday, February 13th. If you are writing a check, make checks payable to Trinity Presbyterian Church with SouperBowl in the memo line.
We will have two drop off stations. One station for each team in the superbowl. Lets see which team has the most giving fans!
Bring your donations and lets tackle hunger together!
