John Cooper School to host 'Empty Bowls Project'
The John Cooper School National Art Honor Society will host the seventh annual "Empty Bowls Project" on Feb. 25.
The project will allow people to eat lunch and take home a handmade ceramic bowl to help raise funds to fight hunger in the community.
For $10, people will receive a meal of soup, bread and water as a reminder of families who are living with hunger and poverty.
"Our local community has helped us raise over $38,000 in the last six years," said faculty sponsor Jayla Ash Davis in a press release. "This year's goal is to raise $10,000 and we hope everyone will join us to make this goal a reality."
Cooper students in grades PK4 through 12, as well as faculty and staff members created the ceramic bowls. A silent art auction will also be held, featuring bowls made by local artists of all ages.
Proceeds from the event will go to the Interfaith Food Pantry, with a portion going to the Imagine Render Group to help continue the Empty Bowls Project on an annual basis.
The NAHS is also looking for community involvement in the event, including donations of soup, bread and water. Local artists are also encouraged to donate to the silent auction portion.
The event will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Student Center, located at 1 John Cooper Drive, in The Woodlands.
Reservation forms are available on the "School News" page at www.johncooper.org.
