The DHS Clay Club members have been working hard to prepare for MCC's annual Empty Bowls event held on October 4th. Students have been throwing, trimming, loading, unloading, glazing, and firing during the first quarter. Their hard work paid off with the final count totaling 300 hand-made bowls, the club's greatest contribution to date. Bowls are sold for $10 each and all the proceeds go to Paz De Christo a local organization that feeds, clothes, and empowers those in need in the East Valley.
