Students Break Record in Fundraisers for Souper Bowl of Caring

Herriman High StudentsAs people everywhere get excited for the big Super Bowl game, students in Jordan School District have been focused on something else, raising money for the Souper Bowl of Caring.

 The Souper Bowl of Caring utilizes Super Bowl weekend in America to mobilize young people to fight hunger and poverty in their local communities. Its vision is to transform Super Bowl weekend into America’s largest youth-led weekend of giving and serving.

This year, our students once again opened their hearts and managed to raise a record amount of money, all of which will go to 54 principal pantries at schools in the District. The money will help feed students who might otherwise go hungry during the school day or on weekends.

With money still coming in, the total raised so far is about $40,871!

Here are totals from several schools, which have finished their fundraising. The local Women in Business organization also contributed to the District’s effort.

  • Bingham High – $25,000
  • Copper Hills High – $5,000
  • Herriman High – $5,000
  • Riverton Elementary – $900
  • Eastlake Elementary – $700
