Dear Reverend Fathers, Youth Leaders, and Church School Directors,
Souper Bowl Sunday 2013 is coming! Team up with International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) for our 15th annual Souper Bowl of Caring on Sunday, February 3, 2013. Rally your parishioners and church youth to champion this social service ministry by feeding the poor and caring for those in need around the world.
It's so easy! Just follow the simple guidelines to lead your youth towards recognition as Souper Bowl MVPs! Parish children and teens can collect donations on or near February 3, 2013, and direct the collected donations to IOCC or a local charity of their choice.
Let's bring the excitement of Super Bowl Sunday into the homes and lives of people in need throughout the world:
- $200 collected from your parish youth can provide a refugee with vocational training;
- $100 can help provide a child in a developing nation with a much needed wheelchair or help bring books to inner city schoolchildren across the United States.
It's a simple but significant act that reminds us of what is truly important. Your parish youth have the power to make a positive impact in the lives of others. Join hundreds of other Orthodox Christian parishes around the country participating in the Souper Bowl of Caring as an opportunity to demonstrate your concern for the hungry.
May God bless you and your parish in this New Year.
Yours in Christ,
Constantine M. Triantafilou
Executive Director and CEO
