LINCOLNTON––The annual “Souper Bowl of Caring” is getting closer.
That’s the word Thursday from Christian Ministry of Lincoln County Executive Director Mitzi Williams. Explicating it further, Williams told us all about it.
“The ‘Souper Bowl of Caring’ has become an annual tradition for many congregations, schools and other youth-led groups, which can make a big difference for charities such as ours that serve the community’s most vulnerable,” she said. “During the week before the Super Bowl football game, dollars and canned goods are collected and donated through various ‘Souper Bowl of Caring’ events. The ‘Souper Bowl of Caring’ is the only fundraiser wherein every dollar goes to our soup kitchen. This is a great way to support their work.
“A letter and a bulletin insert were mailed out to all of our churches,” she added. “We hope you will join the ‘Souper Bowl of Caring’ team to tackle hunger on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 12.”
Talking of the soup kitchen, as Williams continued, it’s in need of sugar and eggs.
