BROWARD COUNTY, FL – January 17, 2010 – United Way of Broward County is partnering with the Souper Bowl of Caring from January 17 to February 7 to collect food to distribute to various non-profit feeding programs within the community. United Way’s partnership with the Souper Bowl of Caring will utilize the publicity of the Super Bowl in South Florida to motivate people to fight hunger and poverty in Broward County.
“The Souper Bowl of Caring is a great way to bring people together to help feed the less fortunate in our own community and participate in the enthusiasm of the upcoming Super Bowl,” says Dr. Jennifer O’Flannery Anderson, president and CEO of United Way of Broward County. “We pride ourselves on developing partnerships like this to help educate the community about the growing hunger problem right here in Broward County.”
The Souper Bowl of Caring began as a single church youth group in South Carolina that has spread to over 11,000 organizations that helped raise $32 million dollars to help fight hunger since 1990. To learn more, call United Way of Broward County at 954-462-4850.
