"Souper" Bowl Canned Soup Drive

The Transfiguration School will be running a "SOUPer Bowl" Food Drive Tuesday, 1/21 through Friday, 1/31 to benefit St. Vincent de Paul Society Food Pantry at Transfiguration Church.

Our Team Goal is to collect 250 canned goods and 100 boxes of cereal by Friday, January 31. If we meet our goal, students will have a "Team Spirit Dress Down" and can wear their favorite Team Jersey or Apparel on Monday after the Super Bowl (2/03)!

Just for fun, students are encouraged to put their donated cans in the receptacle of the team they want to win Super Bowl LIV. Will it be the San Francisco 49ers or the Kansas City Chiefs?

Let's meet or exceed our goal... GO TEAM!
