You All Think The Patriots won but not at Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church
One of the local churches involved in this year’s Souper Bowl of Caring made it a competition between the Seahawks and the Patriots on and off the field. For the three weeks leading up to the game, Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church of Gettysburg’s youth, led by Carol Cogliano, challenged their congregation to donate food items in support of their favorite team – cans of tuna for the Seahawks and jars of peanut butter for the Patriots.
On the field the Patriots won the Super Bowl but at Christ Lutheran the Seahawks won 153 cans to 69 jars. However, the real winners are the guests at the Gettysburg Community Soup Kitchen. In addition to the tuna fish and peanut butter, the church’s Souper Bowl collected 597 other food items and $1200.
