January 18, you can warm up with some soup and support a worthy cause at the same time.

Every year, the potters of the Torpedo Factory donate soup bowls for Souper Saturday, a fundraiser that supports United Community Ministries, which provides a wide variety of services to Northern Virginia families including transitional housing, after-school programs, and a food bank.

For $20, you can get a bowl of soup — clam chowder generously provided by Chart House — and a handmade bowl by a Torpedo Factory artist. Souper Saturday is coming up January 18, 9:00 am to 12:00 noon at the Torpedo Factory (105 N. Union St. in Alexandria).
