National Soup Day

Mmmm good. A nice hot soup is always welcome.

It nourishes and makes us feel good all over. Thursday, February 4 is National Soup Day and Edmonton City Centre is inviting you to pay it forward and “buy somebody some soup” by donating to a charity of your choice. Here are two – one for the body and one for the mind – that ECC has had the privilege of working with.
