“Souper Bowl of Caring” Comes to Livingston

Several houses of worship in Livingston participated on Super Bowl Weekend (Feb. 6, 2011) in the national “Souper Bowl of Caring.”

The “Souper Bowl” is a national movement of congregations, schools, community organizations and compassionate individuals caring for others on the weekend of the big Super Bowl football game. “Souper Bowl of Caring” was organized especially to mobilize youth to positively impact their communities; all the collected funds are donated directly to a charity of each group’s choice.   For more information, see their web site at

In Livingston, the “Souper Bowl” was organized through the Livingston Clergy Association, and all donations were given to Livingston C.H.O.W., the Association’s local organization for connecting neighbors who need help with neighbors who seek to help others.
