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 http://souperbowl.org.
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.
Nationally, some $8 million was collected by 9,677 groups; in Livingston, our groups collected $800. Participating were Trinity Covenant Church, the Presbyterian Church in Livingston, the Full Gospel Church and Grace Lutheran Church, and St. Peter’s Church whose congregants collected canned goods.
For more information about the Livingston Clergy Association or Livingston CHOW, contact the Association’s president, Rev. Dan Martian at the Presbyterian Church of Livingston or Sister Barbara Howard at the Sharing Office of St. Philomena’s Church.
