School Collects Thousands of Cans of Soup for the Hungry 3903 To Be Exact
North Ridge Primary School in Commack held its annual “Souper Bowl” and collected a total of 3,903 cans and bags of soup. Mrs. Esposito, the gym teacher at North Ridge, decided to “sculpt” the cans into the shape of a giant airplane.
Each day when the children came to gym, they were amazed at how well the sculpture was taking shape and this motivated them to bring in more and more soup. All the soup was donated to Long Island Cares, which is one of the region’s most comprehensive hunger action organizations. Long Island Cares serves individuals and families in need, and much of their success is due to the support they receive from donations.
Congratulations to Mrs. Eberhardt and Mrs. Povey’s class who won the “Souper Bowl” by donating over 1,000 cans of soup.
