As football season wraps up with the Big Game this Sunday, it's important to stay mindful that the clock never runs out on the season of need in your community.

The First Presbyterian Church in Cedar Rapids sent a press release asking for your help in getting that need covered with their "Soup-er Bowl Sunday" donation drive to benefit the Linn Community Food Bank. You can drop off a donation Sunday, February 7 between 11:30 am. to 1 p.m.

They will accept donations of any of the following items:

  • Kidney beans
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Tomato sauce
  • Rotel tomatoes w/green Chile peppers
  • Black beans
  • White beans (cannellini, Great Northern)
  • Chicken broth
  • Corn
  • 10-oz canned chicken
  • Cream of chicken soup
  • Chili seasoning packets

You'll notice these items have something in common: they reflect the theme of the event, which is "Soup-er Bowl Sunday", with ingredients to make soups and help the Linn Community Food Bank put together their to-go chili kits (who doesn't love a good pot of chili this time of year??), but any donations will be appreciated. You can drive-up with donations of any of these items and look for youth group volunteers collecting them at the church location, 310 5th St. SE.

Help tackle hunger in the community, and on behalf of Linn Community Food Bank and First Presbyterian Church, thank you.
