Thank You for Making Empty Bowls 2016 a Success!


Empty Bowls 2016 raised over $12,000, thanks to the generosity of everyone involved! We’re grateful for our event participants—our talented artists, musicians, and restaurateurs; the gift baskets from our friends and congregations; the dedication of our many volunteers; our many attendees; and the hospitality of Sierra Madre United Methodist Church.

Our families are always so amazed at the outpouring of love and support from our community of volunteers and donors on their behalf. So thank you all for your efforts, hard work, and generosity. You make it possible for us to continue providing safety and compassion while these families seek to return to stable housing and employment.
