Souper Bowl of Caring
For over thirty years the Souper Bowl of Caring has been inspiring people across the nation to tackle hunger in their own communities. This has been a rich tradition organized by the youth at First Pres for many years. In 2022, we collected an astonishing $1,737.37 and 479 items of food for the Caldwell Food Pantry. These numbers were record breaking for FPC! Let’s try and beat that in 2023!
The in-person collection will run from now until Sunday, February 12th – Super Bowl Sunday! You may donate online until Sunday, February 19th. Food items, including cans of soup, and cash donations will gladly be accepted during Sunday School, and on Sunday mornings. There will also be a bin at the Christian Ed desk for non-perishable food items. Monetary gifts will also be collected through the Church Office and online. See below for all of the ways in which you can donate!
