Souperbowl 2012

7 02 2012

On Sunday, February 5th, there was some football game on… but more importantly it was the Souperbowl of Caring!

The Souperbowl of Caring is a national event where churches and other organizations rally to serve people in need in their community. Superbowl Sunday is not typically a day that we associate with serving others. In fact, it’s among the least likely candidates. But the Souperbowl of Caring, in prophetic subversion, sets that day apart as a day for the sake of the poor and the hungry.

Since 2005, the Jr. High Youth Ministry of FCC Ramona has participated in the Souperbowl of Caring and over those years (including this one) we have raised $4,225.32 and 1,564 food items. This year, last Sunday in fact, we collected $629.00 and 2 food items, thanks to the support of the FCC Congregation! The money will be donated to a local organization dedicated to meeting the needs of those in need in the Ramona community, The Ramona Food & Clothes Closet. God is doing some big things through that organization and this is our way of being a part of it.
