How it works…create cool bowls…eat yummy soup…feed hungry people. Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Novices are joining with the Two Rivers Optimist Club, a friend of youth, for a benefit of the Two Rivers Ecumenical Pantry: Let’s Fill Up The Empty Bowls in Our Community.
Right now, with the help of Silver Lake College of the Holy Family professor, Sister Mariella Erdmann, Sister Monica, Sister Regina Rose and Sister Leslie are doing step 1 : creating cool ceramic bowls. Step 2 is a delicious meal of soup, bread, dessert and beverages on Oct. 2, 2011 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. On that day the Novices hope someone will buy their hand-painted ceramic bowls to help raise funds to feed hungry people as they gather at J.E. Hamilton House Behringer Room in Two Rivers.
On average, TREP serves 428 families. The need is ever present and has increased with the downturn of the economy.
