Maine Catholic youth raise nearly $14,000 in “Souper” Bowl of Caring
In addition to Super Bowl Sunday parties and gatherings, young Catholics from around Maine had more reason to celebrate on Sunday, February 12: a wildly successful “Souper” Bowl of Caring.
The event saw young people collecting money at several Maine parishes with 100 percent of the donations set for delivery to local charities that help tackle hunger in the community.
The young people collected nearly $14,000 and hundreds of food items at weekend Masses. The parishes, totals, and beneficiaries were:
St. Michael Parish, which consists of Augusta, Gardiner, Hallowell, Whitefield, and Winthrop, youth collected over $2,600 for the Catholic Charities Maine food and nutrition program.
Corpus Christi Parish, Waterville and Winslow, youth collected $1,733 to help sponsor a child in El Salvador and for the Lighthouse Soup Kitchen, in Waterville.
