The Mon County Child Advocacy Center is using pottery to help raise money for it's new building.
The advocacy center helps abused and neglected children recover, by using education and counseling in a safe and friendly space.  That space is moving to Greenbag Road, and the center has found a way to raise money and decorate the new entry way.  Children and parents came to the Wow Factory in Morgantown to decorate wall tiles.  Each tile will be placed behind the main desk where kids can go and see their artwork.
"Everyone has been having a great time, I love seeing the children's faces," said Ashlee Talbot, a Child Advocacy Center employee, "They're like, 'Can I have my tile? Can I have my tile?' So they're excited about painting it and they're just happy that they're going to be a part of something that they can go back to and be like, 'Look, I did this!'"
Artists could get one tile for $15, two tiles for $25, or three for $30.  All proceeds will go towards paying for the new building.
