DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The Women’s Ministry at Memphis Baptist Church held an Empty Bowls Dothan session.
The women got together to fellowship and make bowls for the Empty Bowls Project — which is a fundraiser that benefits the Wiregrass Food Bank and the Cultural Arts Center.
The ceramic bowls are made at the session and later sold for $10 at a luncheon on Feb. 1 at the Cultural Arts Center.
That $10 can go a long way and feed a family of four for a whole week who’s in a time of need.
“You could have experienced like a catastrophic circumstance like a house fire, you could have a family member who has gone ill so you have gone from a two-income family to one,” said Julie Gonzalez, the Assistant Director of Wiregrass Food Bank.”That’s usually a very critical time for families. They need to be loved on, they need to be supported, and this is a great way to do that.”
Gonzalez believes they should have over 500 bowls by the time of the luncheon.
