Volunteer your time for the day of the event
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer your time. We have a range of volunteer activities needed. Please provide your phone number, and any information that may be helpful to know in assigning you a volunteer position.
Are you a teacher?
Perhaps your students could make bowls. Empty Bowls is a great learning experience for all.
The event will include a silent auction featuring the work of local artists. Please contact Liesl Glover if you would like to contribute.
We are asking local restaurants, grocery stores, and food suppliers for donations of soup. Upon their arrival at the park, our guests will receive a menu listing the soup choices and providers. Local newspapers will also list our soup providers. Please let us know if you can donate soup or if you can put us in contact with a provider.
Help purchase a stove
Keeping the soup hot is a challenge. You can help by making a donation. A $50 donation would provide Empty Bowls with a butane stove and the fuel. This would be a great way to show your support and would be welcomed by the committee at any time during the year. Please write “butane stove” on the memo line and make the check out to “ALUCC-Empty Bowls by the Lake ”. Checks can be sent or delivered to Avon Lake United Church of Christ, 32801 Electric Blvd, Avon Lake, OH 44012.
Come to the Event (and bring your friends)
A $20 donation will include one pottery bowl, and unlimited soup and bread. Children that accompany a $20 donor may participate in the event for a reduced donation of $5 for ages 6-12 and free for 5 and under. The reduced donation includes soup and bread, but does not include a pottery bowl.
You can donate money to help cover the cost of supplies and other expenses of the event. You can also make a donation to be given directly to CRS or Second Harvest. Please indicate your preference when you donate. Checks should be made out to: ALUCC- Empty Bowls and sent to: Avon Lake United Church of Christ- Empty Bowls 32801 Electric Blvd Avon Lake, OH 44012
