The Souper Bowl of Caring
*THIS POST IS STICKIED. SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE RECENT POSTS*
Gregg and I host a small group on behalf of our church, called a journey group, every week in our home.
This week, through our journey group, Hallee the Homemaker is participating in the Souper Bowl of Caring. The Souper Bowl of Caring is a mobilization to fight hunger and poverty in local communities. During the week leading up to the NFL Super Bowl, we will be collecting money and food that we will donate directly to an organization local to us right here in our town — Angel Food Ministries.
We were very excited to learn about their “Backpack” program and those of us in our journey group are all anxious to support it. Each Friday, Angel Food Ministries puts enough food in the backpacks of disadvantaged children that it provides at least one meal’s worth of food for each day of the weekend to that child.
Any and all money we collect will be given directly to that ministry. We do not send money through the Souper Bowl of Caring or to any national agency — we take it and donate it directly to Angel Food Ministries without any middle men, and simply report the total donated amount to the Souper Bowl Program.
In discussing it in our small group, it occurred to us that if we were this excited about this opportunity to make a real difference in the life of a child, it made sense that some of my readers would want to participate as well. So, I decided to extend this invitation.
If you would like to be part of this opportunity to help feed hungry children in my local community, feel free to make a donation. Should you choose to, we politely ask you to donate just $1 (or more if you feel led). You can click the button below to make a tax deductible donation via Paypal.
If you are also participating in the National Souper Bowl of Caring Program to support a ministry in your community, please let me know in the comments section of this post. We would love to help you promote it.
Thank you for giving us this opportunity to serve Christ and our fellow man in this way.
I’m so grateful for your visit, today.
