Students and Residents Paint for Empty Bowls

By Ann Keaton  |  2/9/2018

Three generations work together to benefit Empty Bowls Monongalia

For the second year in a row, The Village at Heritage Point participated in an intergenerational activity with its partner in education, Brookhaven Elementary School, to benefit Empty Bowls Monongalia. Some of The Village residents and staff worked with the Mountaineer Boys’ and Girls’ Club after school program students to help these children with a bowl painting activity using bowls and painting supplies from The WOW! Factory.

The date for this activity was Tuesday, February 6th, beginning at 4:00 p.m., in the cafeteria of Brookhaven Elementary School.

Trish Cendana, member of the Empty Bowls Board of Directors, talked to the students about the Empty Bowls Monongalia program before the activity. Cendana explained the problem of food insecurity in our area and how this program helps those in our community. She also shared that the children will donate their painted bowls to the Empty Bowls annual soup and bread fundraising luncheon on February 24th, at the Hazel Ruby McQuain Conference Center at Mylan Park.

Cooper, the West Virginia Black Bears’ mascot, and the WVU Cheerleaders also were there to visit with the children.
