WOODLAND PARK, NJ - The Charles Olbon School and Beatrice Gilmore School are participating in the Souper Bowl of Caring - Tackle Hunger and they are asking the community to help supply canned and dry, boxed goods to the less fortunate in the area. Can and dry pet food is also welcome.

As the upcoming NFL Super Bowl is approaching, many of us prepare with celebrations of food and snacks. It is important during these times to think of others that do not have as much as we do.

Donations are being collected until Feb. 7 at Charles Olbon and Jan. 31 at Beatrice Gilmore and will benefit local food pantries.

Within the schools classes are competing to see who brings in the most donated cans. ShopRite is having its annual "can can" sale, so the time is perfect. The class that donates the most canned goods in each school will win a reward such as pajama day or pizza party.

Students can bring in donations to school or utilize the drop and go cart in the vestibule.
