Archbishop Stepinac High School in White Plains is holding its annual SOUPer Bowl with the winning grade level earning the 2020 championship and a day off from school Feb. 3, the day after Super Bowl LIV.
Students are being asked to bring non-perishable food items to their homeroom teachers, who are adding up the items being collected. Stepinac is hoping to collect 12,000 non-perishable food items. The winning grade level will be announced Jan. 31.
“Each year at the end of the holidays, the local soup kitchens become depleted of food items,” Roxanne Calvello, director of Stepinac’s campus ministry, said in a letter to parents. The school launched its first SOUPer Bowl in 2012.
This school year, Archbishop Stepinac had its most successful blood drive with 140 participants, and 158 students raised $17,000 to help the homeless in Westchester County and New York City by participating in the Cardboard Box City Campaign.
