Annual Souper Bowl of Caring

January 26, 2024

Look for the Soup Pots on Sunday, February 11!

Members of our youth group will be outside the sanctuary following both the 9:30am and the 11am services with soup pots to collect monetary donations in support of the nationwide program, Souper Bowl of Caring. An online giving option is also available for those who wish to give that way.

This year, proceeds from our Souper Bowl of Caring will go to two recipients – the William & Mary Campus Food Exchange and Heritage Humane Society’s Kibble Kitchen.

As of 2020, 23% of college students in the U.S have been reported as being food insecure.

The William & Mary Campus Food Exchange is a confidential program which helps provide food as well as household and hygiene products to at risk students, faculty, staff, and contractors associated with the William & Mary community.

Remembering the Importance of Our Furry Friends

When we think of supporting those in need, our youth group firmly believes we should visualize our support in as comprehensive a manner as possible. All too often, the same individuals suffering from food insecurity also suffer from other components of social isolation. And in many cases the companionship of a furry friend can bring with it important social connections and companionship. Yet, in the past year alone, the cost of owning a pet has gone up 9%.

The Heritage Human Society’s Kibble Kitchen deeply values the empowerment of less-fortunate families and individuals of our community by hosting drives and fundraisers to provide essential supplies and low-cost vaccination and procedures, helping to keep their pets out of shelters.

Thank You

On behalf of the whole youth group, you are urged to think of community and caring this Super Bowl Sunday and give. We are eternally grateful for your support in helping WPC’s Youth make a difference.
