The St. Theodore Youth Group collected monetary donations for the Souper Bowl of Caring the weekend of Feb. 4 and Feb. 5 at all of their church services.  Proceeds were donated to the Albert Lea Loaves and Fishes program. 

Students involved recently presented a check to Loaves and Fishes coordinators Peg Shelton and Elaine Sonka.  The students collected $2,587.

According to a press release, the Souper Bowl of Caring is a national organization that helps bring awareness of hunger in in local communities.

The Loaves and Fishes program serves a hot meal almost every Monday at St. Theodore Catholic Church for anyone in need of a good meal.
