Buy a Bowl, Help CHIPS

This is out of the nabe, but it’s such a worthy cause we have to support it. CHIPS is a Park Slope based charity that provides a soup kitchen for needy people and shelter for homeless prenatal women and women with children. Their building recently suffered extensive damage, and some guests were injured, when a neighboring building burned. To help CHIPS restore and move back into its quarters, Brooklyn Potters and Ozzie’s are sponsoring an event, “Empty Bowls for CHIPS in Brooklyn,” part of the worldwide Empty Bowls anti-hunger project. It will happen this Saturday, November 12, from 2:00 to 8:00 p.m., at All Saints Episcopal Church, enter at 463 A Seventh Street, near Seventh Avenue, in Park Slope. There will be music, poetry, and storytelling, and the opportunity to buy one of the bowls made by the Brooklyn Potters for the event. Bowls will sell for $25 each, and all proceeds will go to CHIPS. For more information, call 718-636-8608.

    Thanks for this story. CHIPS has been doing wonderful work for many years. With very little administrative costs they serve a very large community of needed people. I hope that this piece prompts people to send donations directly to CHIPS. I certainly will.
