‘SOUP’er BOWL fundraiser to benefit Trading Post
Over the last several years, the Trading Post Community Care Center has seen a rise in the number of families, especially seniors and working families, needing help with food, clothing, housing, and other basic needs. The center consistently serves more than 5,000 hot meals per year and logs in more than 1,000 volunteer hours to accomplish this work.
In this rural area, many seniors and those who are disabled struggle with fixed incomes and many families are trying to live on low wage incomes.
Due to these factors, the center has seen the need to continue its outreach.
Members are now seeking more caring volunteers to reach out through the community soup kitchen. The kitchen offers a free hot meal to the public at noon every Wednesday. The goal and mission of the community kitchen and food pantry is to reach out by “showing God’s love by sharing a meal with our neighbors and offering a hand of friendship.”
The next fundraising effort for this worthy cause is the “SOUP”er BOWL event which will be held 4 to 8 p.m.
Saturday, Feb. 3 at the Springville Country Club. Tickets are $12 per person presale or $15 at the door and includes bottomless bowls of soup, appetizers, and desserts.
The event will feature music, theme basket raffles, and a 50/50. There will be also be a cash bar.
Everyone is welcome to attend.
The Trading Post is looking for more people who are interested in getting involved. Yo u can make a crockpot of your favorite soup/ chili, an appetizer, donate a gift or theme basket, or volunteer to help in the kitchen. Call 628-3955 or 440-8703 for more information.
