Students at West Hempstead Union Free School District’s Cornwell Avenue School and Chestnut Street School have combined their excitement for the Super Bowl and aiding the community by participating in the “Souper Bowl.”
A pair of boxes representing the two Super Bowl LIII teams, the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots, has been set up at both schools. Students then put cans of soup into the box of the team they are rooting as part of a way to collect donations.
The collections started on Jan. 22 and will conclude on Feb. 1, after which they will be brought to the Mary Brennan INN. The box with the most cans at the end of the challenge will be announced as the Souper Bowl winner for each school.
The district thanks both schools for combining the Super Bowl and community service in an effort to make an impact.
