The Second Presbyterian Church, Parsonage St., Pittston, will be participating in Souper Bowl today, Sunday, February 3.
Souper Bowl Sunday was started to help relieve hunger in America by a Presbyterian church in Columbus, Georgia, and corresponds each year with the annual Super Bowl football celebration. Monies raised are used to help the hungry and are kept in each locality that participates.
The Second Presbyterian Church has participated in this project for many years. This year there will be a free-will offering and a collection of non-perishable items to be donated to the food pantry at the First United Methodist Church in West Pittston.
All the monies collected will be given to the Salvation Army, West Pittston, and the First United Methodist Church food pantry, West Pittston.
For information call the church at 654-1411.
Members of the Sunday School classes will facilitate today's collection. Sunday School is held every Sunday morning beginning at 9:30 a.m., followed by worship at 11 a.m.
The Rev. David Brague is pastor of the church.
