NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
I am Laura Puleo, pastor of Savannah United Methodist Church in Shenango Township.
Like many people in New Castle, I am passionate about giving back to my community and making a positive impact in the lives of others.
As hard as it may be to believe, the problems of hunger and poverty exist right here in New Castle and we often feel that as regular citizens, we can’t make a difference.
But I write today to tell you that through the Souper Bowl of Caring, everyone in New Castle can help care for our neighbors in need.
I am calling on people to help me invite all schools, congregations and businesses to take up a collection on or near Super Bowl Sunday. Every penny collected should be donated directly to a local charity. The Souper Bowl of Caring will help show us the impact our individual efforts have made as they keep a national tally and share it on its website.
Everyone can get involved and find more information at: www.souperbowl.org.
I am grateful to those who are helping me share this wonderful idea. I will keep people posted on the results after Super Bowl Sunday.
Laura A. Puleo, pastor,
Savannah United Methodist Church
