Despite the greatly-reduced event this year, due to your amazing generosity, we raised and were able to donate $33,500 to our recipients! Thank you so much!
We hope this finds everyone safe, healthy, and well during this unprecedented time. We at Loudoun Empty Bowls have been doing what everyone else has been doing – creating a new normal for ourselves, our families, and our communities by strictly adhering to CDC guidelines on flattening the curve of this worldwide health crisis. We are eager to help our neighbors and our community as best we can.
AT THIS POINT IN TIME, EACH OF OUR ORGANIZATIONS ARE IN THE MOST NEED OF MONETARY DONATIONS to continue to provide food to our neighbors in need. Join us in supporting their critical work—even a few dollars will go a long way.
We will be in touch in the next days, weeks and months as the situation unfolds. We appreciate everyone’s support over the years; we want to continue to support this cause that is so near and dear to our hearts. Please take good care of you and your tribe.
Loudoun Empty Bowls board is delighted to report that we distributed funds from our September 2019 event to, respectively, Loudoun Hunger Relief, $25,000 and Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter, $12,500 on November 20, 2019. We met up with Jennifer Montgomery, Judy Handley and friends at Loudoun Hunger Relief in Leesburg where volunteers were busy all around us organizing food for the upcoming thanksgiving distribution. We were able to tour the new Mobile Market truck and hear more about how the donated funds will be utilized to help people in our community with food. There were a few tears – it is an honor to represent all those who contributed and to know the money goes to such good and necessary organizations. We thank the over 500 people who attended this year as well as our wonderful volunteers and donors who always make the event so special. The star of the night is the bowls and we thank all the potters for their one of a kind creations. In our place of plenty, no one should be hungry, no bowl should be empty.
