SOUP IS FOCUS OF WINTER GIFTS
In many congregations around the valley, canned soup is being collected as a mid-winter effort to reduce hunger especially among senior adults and others who may be unable to get out for regular trips to the store. Tied to the Super Bowl football game which falls this year on Feb. 5, Soup for Seniors is promoted by the area’s agency on aging and some neighborhood ecumenical service groups. The Church of St. Peter and St. Paul in the North Lakes neighborhood is a collection point.
