Souper Bowl Soup Collection Feeds the Hungry
The eighth annual “Souper Bowl” at North Ridge Primary School in Commack was a HUGE success! The children collected a total of 5,368 cans and bags of soup, which were donated to Long Island Cares, one of the region’s most comprehensive hunger action organizations.
Physical education teacher, Lorraine Esposito, “sculpts” the cans into different shapes each year. This year she formed the cans into the school’s initials – a giant “NR.” As the “sculpture” took shape each day in the gym, the children were motivated to bring in more donations. Donations were charted and Mrs. Serxner’s second grade class (in photo) won the “Souper Bowl” by donating over 1000 cans of soup. The class received extra gym time as a reward for helping others in need.
