SCHUYLKILL TWP. — Phoenixville Area Community Services held its primary fundraising event, Empty Bowls, at the Technical College High School — Pickering Campus earlier this month.
Attendees enjoyed a simple meal of soup and bread to remind them of the need to combat hunger and choose a keepsake from more than 600 handmade bowls donated by professional and amateur artists and students.
The event also featured live music and a silent auction.
T-shirts designed by a student from Phoenixville Area High School were available for sale.
Funds from Empty Bowls will help provide emergency food supplies and services to local residents.
