January 9, 2011 (La Mesa)--For the fourth consecutive year, youths at United Church of Christ of La Mesa (UCCLM) are active participants in the “Souper Bowl of Caring,” a month-long, nation-wide program in which donations of food, goods, and money are solicited to benefit local service agencies.


The collection of canned goods and other non-perishable foods, along with blankets, clothes and toiletries, will culminate on Super Bowl Sunday, February 6, 2011, with cash contributions accepted after worship.


Donated items and funds will be divided between the Uptown Faith Community Service Center (a homeless outreach program of St. Paul’s Episcopal & Anglican Church) and Crisis House (an East County organization dedicated to the premise that the community should have access to low cost, confidential social/human care services).


UCCLM is located at 5940 Kelton Avenue, La Mesa, CA 91942 (619-464-1519,
