Souper Bowl of Caring
SCBT is proud to partner with the Souper Bowl of Caring to raise money for local hunger-relief charities in the communities we serve. Stop by your local branch today to see how you can help the hungry in your community.
The Souper Bowl of Caring was founded in 1990 by youth at a Columbia, South Carolina church to help hungry people across South Carolina. They originally wanted to see Super Bowl Sunday transformed from its emphasis on professional football into a day of giving and serving. Over 140 million people watch the Super Bowl on TV—imagine what could happen if that many people gave even $1 each to help hungry and hurting people? Since the program went national in 1993, over 40,000 youth groups have donated more than $91 million to charities in their communities.
In 2005, the Souper Bowl of Caring began partnering with SCBT to help encourage other businesses around South Carolina to get involved. And, that partnership continues today.
At SCBT, we believe in the communities we serve. That's why the Souper Bowl of Caring has become such an important program for us. All of the funds that are raised support local charities in each of our communities.
We encourage you to stop by your local branch to see how you can help fight hunger in your community.
