As in years past, on Super Bowl Sunday, the Junior Optimists of Coronado went door to door asking for donations of non-perishable food items. And as always, the Coronado community was happy to help.
Many people look forward to festive eats during the big game and don’t even think of those that go hungry in our own San Diego. That is where the Souper Bowl of Caring comes in. This is a national, youth lead program. This year the Junior Optimists collected 1000 items of food through both food donations and cash donations that they used to buy needed items. A big thank you to partner Sweat Circuit gym, and the many people of Coronado who donated. This year’s donations went to the food locker at Coronado Baptist Church.
