Warwick Valley Empty Bowls 2020

on May 22, 2020

 

Support the Empty Bowls online fundraiser for a chance to win a beautiful bowl!

During this difficult time, the Warwick Valley Empty Bowls Committee and the Warwick Valley High School Empty Bowls Club have once again joined together to support our Town of Warwick food pantries and organizations offering free meals.

This year’s Empty Bowls ice cream social fundraiser, which was scheduled for May 1 at the high school, could not be held due to the COVID-19 virus situation.

So instead, for its 11th annual event, Empty Bowls is holding an alternate online fundraiser featuring a series of monthly drawings for beautiful handmade pottery bowls.

This virtual fundraiser will allow us to help Town of Warwick community members dealing with food insecurity – without putting anyone at risk.

Here’s how the Empty Bowls online fundraiser works:

The fundraiser has begun!
Go to the Empty Bowls website (https://warwickvalleyemptybowls.org/virtual-fundraiser/) where you’ll see a “Donate” button.

At the end of each month, all those who have made an online donation of $10 or more during that month will be entered into a random drawing to win one of three beautiful pottery bowls, each made by a local potter.

After the school district re-opens, monthly prizes will include pottery bowls made by talented WVHS Empty Bowls Club student members.

Over the years, generous local potters have given demos and lessons for high school Empty Bowls Club members, and both adults and students have made many wonderful bowls for the organization’s annual fundraisers.

Winners will be chosen live!
On the first day of each month, beginning this June 1, winners will be pulled at random from the prior month’s donors on the Empty Bowls Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/WVEmptyBowls/) .

Arrangements will be made with each monthly winner for local delivery or shipping (paid for by an Empty Bowls volunteer).

Please join us in helping our community members in need, especially during this time – and donate each month for more chances to win!

Proceeds from Warwick Valley Empty Bowls events are donated to these Town of Warwick food pantries and organizations that provide free food and meals:

Backpack Snack Attack program
Warwick Community Kitchen
Florida Community Food Pantry
Greenwood Lake Food Pantry
St. Peter Lutheran Church Food Pantry
Warwick Ecumenical Food Pantry

We appreciate and thank those who help Warwick Valley Empty Bowls make a difference in the lives of many fellow community members.

Each year, local potters donate beautiful handmade bowls for Warwick Valley Empty Bowls.
