More than 20 years ago, Souper Bowl of Caring began with a simple prayer from a single youth group: "Lord, as we enjoy the Super Bowl football game, help us to be mindful of those without even a bowl of soup to eat."
Since that day, more than $71 million has been raised for local charities across the country through Souper Bowl of Caring.
Through this mission, young people learn what it's like to make a positive difference in the world - as they collect food, raise money and volunteer to work in charities that provide shelter to the homeless, food to the hungry and compassion to those in need.
COLLECTION — Katie Jack, daughter of Bernie and Kerrie Jack of Slatyfork, collected $247 and food which will be given to Tyrand Cooperative Ministries of Mill Creek.
The churches of the Mingo United Methodist Charge in the Valley Head and Slatyfork area participated in this year's Souper Bowl of Caring by collecting both food as well as monetary donations.
