Hillside Elementary's “Souper Bowl” Forecasts Ravens Win, Benefits North Fulton Community Charities
The students at Roswell’s Hillside Elementary seemed to do a good job forecasting the winner of Super Bowl XLVII during their own “Souper Bowl” canned food drive last week. More than 1,500 cans of food were collected during the week-long canned drive from January 28 to February 1. Students had the opportunity to use each can of food donated as a vote for their favorite team in the Super Bowl, and the Ravens won the Hillside Elementary poll by a landslide.
“The ‘Souper Bowl’ was a fun and exciting way for the students to take part in Super Bowl festivities. But, more importantly, it was a meaningful way for them to take part in a service project that benefited our community,” said Dr. Maisha Otway, principal of Hillside Elementary.
All the canned food collected during the “Souper Bowl” was donated to North Fulton Community Charities to fill their need for canned soups this time of year. In addition, the students had the hands-on experience of helping to make a dry soup mix that was also donated to the charity.
