JLP’s “Souper Bowl of Caring” last week raised $371 to alleviate hunger in our community. Our partner again in 2018 is F.I.S.H., which provides emergency food aid to people in need in Anchorage. The money we raised will purchase about 1700 lbs. of food relief in our community. (Since F.I.S.H. concentrates on emergency food aid, it complements our partnerships with the Lutheran Social Services Food Bank and the Alaska Food Bank’s Mobile Food Pantry.)
Last week, New England Patriots supporters at JLP contributed $106 to the Souper Bowl. Our Philadelphia Eagles fans contributed $265. This lopsided victory foreshadowed the final result, but not the close game we saw played later that day in Minneapolis.
Thanks to everyone who participated!
