Jul 11, 2006
Souper Bowl of Caring, the ecumenically promoted antihunger campaign that plays off the name of the annual professional football championship game, has collected $4.8 million, with donations still not fully reported as of last month.
The Salvation Army has returned to the top of the Chronicle of Philanthropy’s list of the nation’s 400 most successful fund-raising organizations, the newspaper reported. The Christian charity had dropped to the second position in the newspaper’s annual “Philanthropy 400” last year. It previously had always held the No. 1 slot.
