Like soup? Like football? Like making a difference?
The Traer United Methodist Church will be holding a special event this Sunday, February 3. "The Souper Bowl of Caring," a food, cash and donation drive, will take place at the church.
The event, which is part of a nationwide effort to fight hunger, encourages young people to take up a collection and give 100% of the profits directly to the local hunger-relief charity of their choice.
Non-perishable foods, especially things like canned soup, along with personal care items or cash donations, are welcome.
In addition, participants are encouraged to wear their favorite football team's colors to make it a fun and festive atmosphere.
The number of items donated will be counted, along with any financial donations, and be entered on the nationwide website at www.souperbowl.org.
