For the 10th consecutive year, Gribbin Elementary School took part in the Souper Bowl of Caring food drive. Students, faculty and staff collected 207 pounds of non-perishable food items over a two-week period.
The Souper Bowl of Caring is a youth inspired, youth-led movement that works with schools, churches, local businesses, corporations, passionate individuals and NFL teams in the weeks leading up to the Super Bowl to help generate food and resources at a critical time of year when charities are reporting a decrease in volunteers and donations.
The Gribbin school donated 100% of the collected food items to the food pantry at the Church of St. Rocco.
