DARIEN, Conn. - Students raised $900 at the Second Annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser at Darien High School last month.
Ceramics 1, 2, 3 and Honors Art students donated their handmade bowls to raise money for Person-to-Person. Students and staff could make donations of $3 to $5 and receive a sundae in one of the bowls. The donor was asked to keep the bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world.
The Empty Bowls Project is an international grassroots effort to raise money and awareness in the fight to end hunger.
P2P says “thanks” to everyone – from the artisans to the donors – who helped make this fundraiser a success. Their generosity and commitment will help keep the P2P Emergency Food Pantry well-stocked for the benefit of the agency’s clients.
Empty Bowls is a grassroots effort to fight hunger that was created by The Imagine Render Group. The basic premise is simple: potters work with the community to create handcrafted bowls. In exchange for a cash donation, guests are invited to enjoy food out of the bowl and keep the bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world.
Darien High School Ceramics 1, 2, and 3 classes and Honors Art students worked throughout February and March creating the colorful ceramic bowls.
