Local students and artists have been busy creating about 600 bowls for the upcoming Souper Bowl event to benefit a local non-profit group.
Over the past few weeks, students at Coastal Montessori Charter School and Lowcountry Preparatory School, both in Pawleys Island, have created hand-crafted bowls for the event.
Also, Seacoast Artist Guild and other individual artists have been working on their bowls.
The Souper Bowl will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26, at Precious Blood of Christ Catholic Church in Pawleys Island.
Proceeds from the event will go to Habitat for Humanity Georgetown County for upcoming home builds.
Annette Perreault, executive director of Habitat for Humanity Georgetown County, said she is excited that so many people in the community are coming together to support this effort.
“I would like to express Habitat’s sincere appreciation and gratitude to our extremely hard working community and its support to help our families seek simple decent affordable homes,” Perreault said.
“The exciting part of having students involved demonstrates how the entire community comes together to help our Habitat families, regardless of age.”
She said it is wonderful that our younger generation is learning to give back to the community.
“They will be the leaders of tomorrow who come forward to volunteer and organize groups to help others,” Perreault said.
