On September 7, 2018 the SOUPer Bowl Food Drive to benefit Community Resource Services (CRS) was held. This annual food drive is a friendly competition between Avon and Avon Lake. Congratulations to Avon for winning this year’s SOUPer Bowl, although the real winner is CRS and the families that we serve in Avon and Avon Lake.
The generosity of students, staff and community members from both Avon and Avon Lake was overwhelming. Both communities together donated $9,978 and 6,953 pounds of food. Since its inception in 2010, the SOUPer Bowl Food Drive has raised a total of 57,519 pounds of food and $99,539 in monetary donations!
