Theme Song Thursday: “Help” One Another

7 Feb

“One of the marvelous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn’t as individuals. When we pool our strength and share the work and responsibility, we can welcome many people, even those in deep distress, and perhaps help them find self-confidence and inner healing.”
― Jean Vanier, Community And Growth

McKinney and nearby communities braved the ice, snow and frigid temperatures to support St. Peter’s Empty Bowls project, feeding the hungry one bowl at a time. Visitors were able to chose from one of hundreds of handcrafted donated bowls created by local craftsman, students and professional artisans.

Delicious soups, breads, desserts and beverages were served, while friends and neighbors enjoyed an evening of entertainment, laughter and community. A separate silent auction of professional artisan bowls raised over $3,200.

The amazing part of this fundraiser is that all the profits help support our community. Volunteers donated their time, local restaurants provided the food, artists donated the bowls. A community coming together to “HELP” one another.
