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! Your generous donation will help raise awareness of hunger and homelessness in the Carbon Valley and surrounding area. All proceeds will help pay utility bills, rent/mortgage payments, and auto repairs for those in need in Carbon Valley. Instead of a 1 day event we are raising funds all through October through Colorado Gives.
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.
