All proceeds from the $35 bowls will benefit Safe Harbor of Chester County, a local non-profit that provides housing, food, and access to support services for homeless single men and women in Chester County.

Andrew Snyder says, “This has become an annual tradition of sorts for the Art + Design Department. Last year didn’t happen, but we’re happy to be back and supporting Safe Harbor, a local organization so vital to our community, and at a time when there are many needy people in our community. We invite all members of the WCU and surrounding communities to come support this cause and walk away with a beautiful bowl and a package of ramen to boot.”Empty bowl 3
