CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) -

Artisans at Southern Illinois University Carbondale are hard at work creating bowls for a fundraiser to benefit the Good Samaritan House of Carbondale.

The Neighborhood Co-op Grocery and the SIU School of Art and Design, Southern Clay Works are teaming up for the "Empty Bowls" event on Saturday, October 15.

It runs from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the co-op grocery on West Main Street.
