ISSUE: Warm Blessings fundraiser
OUR VIEW: Unique effort worth being annual
Creativity and compassion combined recently at Warm Blessings’ Empty Bowls event.
For a gift of $15, participants received a ceramic bowl, handmade by the organization’s volunteers, and a meal. It was a reminder that some people have empty bowls. Further, bowls made by community leaders were auctioned to raise more money.
About 160 diners attended and the project has raised more than $12,000 with more donations expected.
