Souper Bowl Sunday: Start stocking up on canned soup/goods for our annual Souper Bowl Sunday! Next Sunday, February 5th, please bring cans of soup to the gathering area and wear your favorite school colors. For everyone who wears a team jersey, jacket or shirt, our anonymous donor will contribute a canned good. Last year, our food pantry, which is only open four hours a week, served approximately 5,000 individuals. Let’s help stock their shelves, feed hungry people and show your team spirit!
