This year, the Helping Hands Club at West Islip’s Beach Street Middle School hosted its first Soup-er Bowl drive. During the week leading up to the Super Bowl on Feb. 7, the club asked the school community for canned soup donations to be placed in the decorated football team box – Bucs or Chiefs – of their choice. The soup cans were later donated to a local food pantry.
“During these cold winter months, it is important to think of those in need,” said school counselor Kathleen Crowley. “This hearty soup drive was what giving back is all about.”
