2018 Souper Bowl of Caring

Sunday, February 4, 2018

On or near Super Bowl Sunday, February 4, 2018, several area churches, schools, and civic organizations will collect donations and then give 100% of their collection to Community Harvest. By using this weekend as a time to help the hungry, many youths in our community will learn about the reality of hunger in their own neighborhoods as they turn one of the nation’s universal days of celebration into an opportunity to care for those in need.

Short video clips and additional information can be found at Contact Faith Barbato by email or at 330.493.0800 for more information.
