As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, we have been a large part of Washington County’s resource network. We receive no funds from the County, State, or Federal Government, but with the support of many volunteers, grants and donations from the community, we have served many people with nowhere to turn to for the goods they urgently needed. This year (2016) many businesses signed on as sponsors and the "Soup-er Bowl" was an outstanding success. The St. Paul Park Refinery signed on as the lead sponsor for the 8th Annual “Soup-er Bowl " Sponsorship levels were from $100 to $3,000 or more. Our community generosity helped raise over $50,000 for Stone Soup Thrift Shop.
