Students at The White Mountain School and Rachel Van Wylen, chair of the School’s Art Department, recently presented representatives from All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Littleton with the proceeds raised through the fall 2019 Empty Bowls fundraiser at the School.
The Empty Bowls fundraiser, which has been held at the School for several years, allows students at all levels of experience to create and auction off bowls and other pottery pieces to members of the School and the local community. This year, the students’ creations raised $469.25 in total, which was accepted by The Rev. Curtis E. Metzger and Rebecca Hill-Larsen from All Saints’.
The proceeds of the Empty Bowls fundraiser will help support All Saints’ Emergency Food Cupboard. The Emergency Food Cupboard provides food and other critical personal supplies to North Country individuals and families in need. It is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. and on Sundays from 9:00 to 9:45 a.m. Anyone is welcome to receive assistance twice in every calendar month. The ministry, housed and administered by All Saints’, is a collaborative effort of several Littleton area churches and community organizations, such as White Mountain. In 2019 alone, the Emergency Food Cupboard served over 1,700 households, over 3,800 individuals, and provided food for over 34,700 meals.
Founded in 1886 and set in the beautiful White Mountains of northern New Hampshire, The White Mountain School is a coeducational college-preparatory boarding and day school for 135 students grades 9-12/PG. Our mission is to be a school of inquiry and engagement. Grounded in an Episcopal heritage, White Mountain prepares and inspires students to lead lives of curiosity, courage, and compassion.
