Honor the Patriots while tackling hunger in Milton’s Souper Bowl of Caring
You “Can” Make a Difference
Everyone can contribute to our efforts to tackle hunger right here in our community. Our Souper Bowl of Caring drive needs you. This Sunday, February 4, is Super Bowl Sunday for our Patriots and it is Souper Bowl of Caring Sunday in Milton.
The pastors of East Congregational Church and Parkway United Methodist Church, Rev. Shelly Davis and Rev. Kathryn Johnson, have issued the following challenge for their congregations and all of Milton.
Donate one can of soup or one dollar for each point the Patriots scored (24) in the AFC Championship win that vaulted them into their tenth Super Bowl. All donations will be shared locally through the Milton Community Food Pantry and the pantry at Interfaith Social Services in Quincy.
You can drop off your cans of soup and monetary donations on Sunday, Feb. 4, between 9:00 and 10:00 am at either:
East Congregational Church
610 Adams Street
(front or back door)
Parkway United Methodist Church
158 Blue Hills Parkway
If you cannot carry 24 cans of soup please give $24 in an envelope clearly marked Souper Bowl of Caring or write a check to East Church or Parkway UMC for $24 and clearly note on the memo line: Souper Bowl of Caring.
Involve your kids too and either have them help you shop for and carry that soup OR have them give 24 dimes (24 times the number of times (10) the Patriots have been in the Super Bowl), also in an envelope clearly marked Souper Bowl of Caring.
About the The Souper Bowl of Caring
The Souper Bowl of Caring is a national program started by a single church youth group 28 years ago in Columbia, South Carolina. Since then, ordinary young people have generated more than $135 million for soup kitchens, food banks and other charities in communities across the country. In addition, hundreds of thousands of youth have experienced for themselves the joy and satisfaction of giving and serving, inspiring people of all ages to follow their generous example.
Now its our turn.
So pour it on Milton!
And let’s go Patriots!
