SOUPER BOWL OF CARING OFFERING & SOUP DRIVE UPDATE
THANK YOU! Thank you so much for your generosity! We collected a total of $1,098.50 and a total of 265 cans of soup to be donated to our McGregor Snack Packs Program. So, who won McGregor’s Souper Bowl of Caring? Donations were placed in bins with the names of the Super Bowl teams so you could vote for the team you thought (or hoped) would win the Super Bowl. Donations for the Kansas City Chiefs: $584 and 140 cans of soup. Donations for the Philadelphia Eagles: $514.50 and 125 cans of soup. The Chiefs won the Super Bowl and McGregor’s Souper Bowl of Caring! But the 160+ children at the five District 5 schools our Snack Packs Program serves each week by providing food for the weekend are the real winners! Go McGregor! Thank you!

GREAT BACKYARD BIRD COUNT
The Missions Committee invite you to participate in the Audubon Society’s Great Backyard Bird Count. Every February, as bird species begin to migrate, the Audubon Society, in coordination with Cornell Ornithology Labs asks interested parties to spend as little as 15 minutes observing and recording birds in your very own backyard. By participating in this project, they can help identify migratory patterns and help scientists to understand the number of different bird species in our area. Cornell has an app called “Merlin” where you can identify and record the birds you observe. You can find the app here: merlin.allaboutbirds.org. Please see https://www.birdcount.org
for more information.
