St. Louise de Marillac School is participating in the Archdiocese of Chicago and Catholic Charities new initiative, the Soup-er Stadium Challenge, a collective effort to help eliminate hunger in our community. The Challenge asks every Catholic school student, teacher and staff member to donate (at least) one non-perishable food item to fill the shelves of Catholic Charities' food pantries.
The goal is to collect enough food to fill every seat in Soldier Field twice. This collection will provide more than 100,000 meals to Chicagoans in need. The Challenge has support from Soldier Field and Charles Tillman, retired Chicago Bears cornerback, who has agreed to be the spokesman for the initiative.
As part of their participation in the Challenge, St. Louise School will be entered into a drawing to win a variety of prizes, including autographed items from Charles Tillman, a tour of Soldier Field, and an American flag that has been flown over Soldier Field.
