The Carbon Valley Help Center is excited to host our 7th annual Empty Bowls Project for our community. Although this year’s event will look different, it will make just as much an impact to those we serve!
When the Pandemic began, we were in the midst of planning our annual fundraiser. It became clear we needed to pivot, rethink the in-person event, but still hold the fundraiser as an opportunity for our community to unite and support our neighbors in need. The number of people counting on this event is the highest it has ever been and we see new community members in need daily. We have served over 800 people this year, which is a 26.6% increase compared to the same time last year. This includes 51 new households that received services from the CVHC for the 1st time. The need is real and right in our backyard. This year to keep our bowls from being empty, we not only need to fill them with love & hope but also physical as well as financial resources so we can give to our neighbors.
The Empty Bowls Project began in 1990 to raise funds for a food drive. What started as an art project in a Michigan high school class has grown to be an international project that reminds us hunger is fought daily and is happening in both global and local communities.
An online, month-long fundraiser will take place this October. A video featuring companies &/or families at certain sponsorship levels will be filmed. This video will be made available on both the CVHC website & facebook pages prior to and following the event for months as a thank you for supporting CVHC.
Cash and check donations can be mailed to P.O. Box 508, Firestone, CO 80520, or dropped off at 150 Buchanan, Firestone, CO 80520.
