More than 28 years ago, the Souper Bowl of Caring began with a simple prayer from a single youth group: “Lord, even as we enjoy the Super Bowl football game, help us be mindful of those without a bowl of soup to eat.”
Since that day, more than $135 million has been raised for local charities across the country through the Souper Bowl of Caring. It has become a powerful movement that is transforming the time around the Big Game into the nation’s largest celebration of giving and serving.
Through this mission, young people and families learn what it’s like to make a positive difference in the world as they collect food, raise money for local food banks, and volunteer to work in charities that provide shelter to the homeless, food to the hungry and compassion to those in need.
On Sunday, February 4, Peace Tree will collect canned goods and other non-perishable foods to donate to the Collierville Food Pantry. After the food drive concludes at 11:30 a.m., we will report our total to Souper Bowl of Caring to see how our donation impacts the national efforts. We’ve seen families grow from this experience as they learn how the power of working together truly makes a difference in the lives of others.
Be a part of the movement that’s sharing God’s love with those in need. Please give generously this weekend on Super Bowl Sunday. Cash gifts and food donations will be collected in the lobby of the Malco Forest Hill (3180 Village Shops Dr, Germantown, TN 38138). 100% of donations collected in the lobby will go to the Collierville Food Pantry.
Thank you for giving generously and for supporting our mission, “Love God by Loving Others. God bless, and we’ll see you Sunday!
+Peace and Love from Pastor Kris
