Alexandria Central School (ACS) in Alexandria Bay is hosting an "Empty Bowls" event to raise money for the school's Backpack Club from 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, March 4.
At Empty Bowls, a $10 donation buys you a ceramic bowl handmade by an ACS student and filled with spaghetti. After dinner, participants may keep their bowls as reminders of all the empty bowls in the world.
The Backpack Club provides food on the weekends to ACS children whose families cannot otherwise afford it.
Alexandria Central School is located at 34 Bolton Ave. in Alexandria Bay.
