TCCS students hoping to fill empty bowls for others

Students at Tidioute Community Charter School have come up with a unique — and artsy — way to raise funds for those in need in their community.

“Tidioute Community Charter School art students made ceramic bowls — “empty bowls” — and TCCS graphic art students created a cookbook to go along with the empty bowls,” TCCS Office Manager Heather Cass told the Times Observer.

The bowls and cookbooks are now for sale in the office at TCCS.

Students are requesting that donations of at least $5 be made per bowl, Cass added.

“This project is another example of students fulfilling the TCCS mission of service to the Warren County, Forest County area, and Titusville area communities,” Chief Educational Officer Dr. Doug Allen said. “Many of our families need assistance at seasonal times and we are about helping people at TCCS.”

Photo submitted for publication Students at Tidioute Community Charter School pictured with the “empty bowls” they have made as part of a fundraiser to benefit people in need in the Tidioute Community. In the photo are, left to right, front row Lexis Drunkenbrod, Lyli Breeding, Aubrey Barnes, Olivia Egger and Andreya Curtin and, back row, Isaiah Passingham, Anthony Sabella, Wyatt Sanders, Jolynn Durlin and Kaylin Franks. Those who participated in the project but are not in the picture include Codie Spittler, Caitlyn Banister, Jacob Blankenberg, Arreanna Anderson and Jadyn Bynum.

Cass said that students “plan to use the donations locally to help fight hunger or help people in need.”

She said that empty bowl projects “traditionally have a soup dinner. Having the cookbook rather than soup makes the project more timeless, and more convenient with everyone’s already busy schedules.”
