Dear Reverend Fathers, Youth Leaders, and Church School Directors,
Souper Bowl Sunday 2011 will be here very soon! Join with International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) in our 13th consecutive Souper Bowl of Caring by mobilizing your parish to feed the poor and care for those in need around the world. This is a great way to involve your youth in social service ministry.
And it's easy! Just follow the simple guidelines and let your youth become Souper Bowl MVPs! Your youth can collect donations on or near February 6, 2011 and direct the collected donations to IOCC or a local charity of their choosing.
Let's carry 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 provide a child in a developing nation with their first wheelchair or help to deliver books for inner-city schools in the United States.
It's a simple but significant act that reminds us what is truly important. Your youth will make a positive difference. Join hundreds of Orthodox Christian parishes that will participate 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
