The Sunrise School Ambassadors and 5th through 8th grade Sunday school class at Hope United Church of Christ are collaborating to collect non-perishables for the “Souper Bowl of Caring” food drive. Donations will be split equally and given to Feed My People in Sturgeon Bay and Lakeshore CAP.

The groups worked together to make signs and decorate boxes and raise awareness for their food drive in order to meet their goal of collecting 1,000 items. Sunday school teacher Karen Rittle says the kids got a leg-up from the Door Community Foundation after Econo Foods offered a 2-for-1 deal if they received a grant.
Collections have been rolling in over the past few weeks and Rittle says they’ve had to empty boxes at a few locations so they can be filled up again.
There are boxes at various locations in Sturgeon Bay including Econo Foods, City Hall, all three of the elementary schools and the YMCA. The collection runs through February 24.
