FCSLA In the Community:
Matching Funds Program

Souper Bowl of Caring

The FCSLA is proud to announce our first Matching Funds Activity has been submitted and approved for payment. Branch 53 in Channahon, IL, worked with the St. Ann Youth Group, G.L.U.E. (God's Love Unites Everyone) sponsoring a "Souper Bowl of Caring."

This is a nationwide, youth-led effort. The teens hold soup pots and man the exits of the church after all the masses on Super Bowl weekend. They encourage parishioners to give monetary donations to fill their soup pots as they leave church. The branch members and teens raised $673.90, in their soup kettles. The money raised was presented a week later, on February 8, 2009, to the Catholic Charities Daybreak Shelter. The teens and branch members volunteered their time on this date, preparing and serving lunch to the community's needy at Shepherd's Table.
