LOCAL: Groton Community Dinners Empty Bowls Fundraiser
Friday, May 9, 6 p.m., Groton Community Dinners will host the "Empty Bowls Fundraiser" at First Parish Church of Groton. Five years ago, Groton Community Dinners (GCD) became a reality when a group of dedicated volunteers had an idea to bring the community together. This core team of volunteers created a space and helped coordinate a diverse set of community groups to host monthly dinners for people in our area.
From the outset, the group was clear that they wanted to offer something a little different from a typical soup kitchen, and focused on fostering community by offering a healthy, delicious meal for all, free of charge, in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
To commemorate its fifth anniversary, Groton Community Dinners will host its first-ever fundraiser to help continue its local outreach. Cost per person is $25. The first 100 people who respond will receive a one-of-a-kind, handmade bowl. More information at http://grotoncommunitydinners.org/May_fundraising.html
