'Souper' Bowl Campaign Encourages Kids To Volunteer, Making Middle Georgia Great

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) -- A team of kids and teenagers sat in the basement of Bethel C.M.E. church, getting themselves amped to get out and serve throughout the Macon community.

The Souper Bowl of Caring is a national organization, which gets kids to get out and make a difference throughout their community.

"It's not just about giving of your resources, but giving of your time and all that you have," Charles Coney of the Souper Bowl of Caring explains.

To prepare mentally for the event, former professional football player Roger Jackson, is giving the kids words of wisdom.

"You have to really, really think and make good choices," Jackson said.

The group then went out to the city of Macon, to help spread a message of goodwill and encouragement to others. One group left to volunteer for Macon Habitat for Humanity. They cleaned up a plot of land full of debris and brush. The area will be used later this year as the site for a new house build by Habitat for Humanity.

"I don't really watch the Superbowl, so I thought it would be great to help out," 15 year-old Nyanna Miller says.

Kameron Agee decided to come join a friend of his in the service project. Agee says it's important for him to realize that there are people who are less fortunate than himself, and that every little bit helps.

"I know I have a place to put my head...but everybody is not as fortunate. So it's just good to be able to help people out."

So while these kids aren't scoring the game-winning touchdown, or making that remarkable catch, this 'Souper' Bowl will prove to be that is unforgettable.

"Any way that I can help, I will. Even though I got a couple of scratches from it, I'll survive from it!" Miller says.
