The “youth” of the Community Presbyterian Church of Malverne will be holding soup pots at the church doors on Souper Bowl Sunday, February 3, 2008. We will be joining people in churches across the country to collect money for those who are hungry and hurting. In 2007, over 14,500 groups participated in the Souper Bowl of Caring, generating over $8 million. All of the money we collect on Sunday here in Malverne is donated to the Long Island Council of Churches. We will report our collection total so national totals can be determined and announced. Since the Souper Bowl of Caring began in 1990, more than $41 million has gone to help people in need. Please support the youth of our church in this effort to “love our neighbors” by dropping your dollar in the soup pot on February 3 and bringing in canned food to be collected during the service.
Talk this up in our community, we can extend this beyond the church doors. Canisters to contribute to the cause are located in Malverne in the Malverne Deli and Antionio's on Hempstead Avenue.
