Hammond High Fills Empty Bowls for Grassroots 2/23 @5:30

Tue, 01/23/2018 - 7:17am

Hammond High School’s National Art Honor Society, Art Club and Culinary Arts Department are hosting “Empty Bowls 2018,” a community fundraiser for Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center, on Friday, February 23rd, from 5:30 – 7:30 pm, in the cafeteria.  Admission is $10 and includes an all-you-can-eat soup and bread dinner and a handmade ceramic bowl.  Soups are made fresh and donated by faculty, parents and students.

The ceramic soup bowls have been created by Hammond High School students. The soups are made by faculty and students participating in the Hammond High School Culinary Arts program. All of the proceeds from the event go to Grassroots, Howard County’s only 24-hour crisis center and homeless shelter.

The National Art Honor Society was founded by the National Art Education Association to inspire and recognize students with an outstanding ability in art and to bring art education to the attention of the school and the community. 

Columbia-based Grassroots is staffed by professional crisis counselors who answer 24-hour hotlines, see walk-ins in need of immediate counseling assistance, operate the mobile crisis team which responds to community emergencies, and manage the county’s emergency shelter for homeless men, women and families.

No reservations are necessary for Empty Bowls, and attendees pay at the door. Hammond High School is located at 8800 Guilford Rd. in Columbia. For more information, call 410-313-7615.
