A Souper Success

A Souper Success. 

Wilshire’s Souper Bowl of Caring is shaping up to be a huge success despite being very different this year. At press time, 136 Souper Bowl Boxes had been spoken for, with $14,490 raised to support the work of Mission Oak Cliff.

“We set a goal of $7500, thinking it would be challenging to reach due to the pandemic,” says Associate Pastor Heather Mustain. “However, not only did we surpass our original goal, but you’ve made this year our most successful year to date. Thank you for being a congregation who rallies around advancing the call to serve our neighbors in such practical and tangible ways. Because of your generosity, others will be able to experience both full stomachs and spirits.”

The event registration on Wilshire’s website will remain open until all Souper Bowl Boxes are gone. Each box includes a food thermos with the Wilshire logo and seven soup recipes from the church kitchen. You can also make a contribution without receiving a box; include the note “World Hunger” or “Souper Bowl of Caring” on your check or with your online contribution.

Three participants won a gift box from the Market at Bonton Farms. Winners were Carole Jean and Maxey Abernathy, Angela and Jim Sayre and Patricia and David Anderson.
