Each year on the Sunday before the Super Bowl game our children, youth, and Christian Ed leaders invite us to participate in the most important souper bowl of all. The Souper Bowl of Caring "empowers youth and unites communities around the time of the Big Game to help those in need." This powerful program, started by youth in 1990, initially engaged 22 churches in Columbia, South Carolina. Last year the Souper Bowl of Caring raised over $10,500,000 in food and monetary donations for people in need all over our nation! 100% of East Church's donations (dollars and food) were shared with our long-time local hunger-relief partners, Interfaith Social Services and the Milton Food Pantry. Thanks to Helen for delivering many bags of food!
