"Souper" Supper - Thursday, October 30th, 2014
Family, friends, and neighbors joined together once again on October 30, 2014 to celebrate a yearly tradition at Steel Lake Presbyterian Church - the 15th Annual "SOUPER" SUPPER fundraiser! The room was filled with the warmth of fellowship and people uniting together to help fight hunger and homelessness in our community.
We were fortunate to once again have Pastor Joe Bowman of Integrity Life Church as our M. C.
Successful northwest architect, Rex Hohlbein, was the evening's guest speaker Rex shared his experiences of meeting people who were homeless near his office in the Fremont area and how it all led to a life-altering decision. For over a year now, he has devoted the majority of his time and energy to helping the less fortunate who live on the streets. To learn more, go to wwwfacinghomelessness.org.
As the Federal Way Community Caregiving Network is completely a volunteer organization, all of the proceeds from "Souper" Supper directly benefit the homeless and those facing very difficult times and situations. HOPE TO SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!!

Souper Supper began in 2000 when the Network realized the community's low-income population needed more help than the FWCCN could provide on its own. The supper is the largest contributing fundraiser to our annual budget, and goes a long way towards helping us complete our mission.
Each year on the last Thursday of October, members of the community gather at Steel Lake Presbyterian Church for this fabulous, fun event. Souper Supper attendees are treated to over a dozen varieties of soup, all donated by local restaurateurs and grocers. Cornbread, rolls, beverages and desserts are also provided. And to add to the fun, lots of raffle prizes are awarded during the evening!
This is the Caregiving Network’s main fundraiser. Proceeds support our Emergency Services and Meals Programs which assist people with low, often poverty-level, incomes with food, rent, limited motel stays, gasoline and other basic needs for daily survival.
Our goal is to help people stay in their homes, stave off hunger and provide some of the necessities that most people take for granted.
