America’s best Super Bowl party

It happened in Philadelphia: 

A local organization opened its doors Sunday for homeless people across Philadelphia to come in and watch the Super Bowl and have a few snacks.

The 11th annual Super Bowl party for the homeless is a project of the Chosen 300 Ministries in the city’s Spring Garden neighborhood.

People who attended the morning church service were invited back to participate in the evening’s festivities.

“We have a double meal where we have a pregame lunch,” says Chosen 300 Executive Director Brian Jenkins, “and then also a full course barbecue chicken meal with my wife’s famous macaroni and cheese.”

Jenkins says they are using the Super Bowl as an avenue to provide hope and help to those in need.

“Many of them are staying at a shelter or maybe some of them are out on the streets,” he says. “They wouldn’t have the opportunity to sit down enjoy the game with their family and friends and have a great time, so that’s what this is all about.”
