Thanks, volunteers

The 5 Cities Homeless Coalition would like to extend our gratitude for the widespread support of “Empty Bowls.”

The event held last month was truly a community gathering where over 30 celebrity servers and leaders from throughout the county served soup donated from over 20 local restaurants. Through the generosity of local artists and many schoolchildren, 800 ticket holders have a beautiful ceramic bowl as a thank-you for making a difference in the lives of our homeless population. We truly appreciate the partnership with our volunteers, sponsors and members of the community who each day work to make a difference in the lives of those who need our focus. Thank you.
