Empty Bowls is a soup and dessert fundraiser held in late February or March of each even year (2012-2014-2016…) and depending on the “March Madness” basketball schedule! Volunteers and other community supporters make the clay bowls for the event. Everyone who attends gets a handmade bowl to remind them that some people’s “Bowls are Empty.” A highlight of the event is the auction of bowls made by community leaders.
Heartland Parade and past Festival: Warm Blessings has participated in the parade and had an information booth and dunking booth at the festival. We thank all of the volunteers who have walked in the parade, manned the information booth and those who were brave enough to be dunked in the dunking booth.
Cardboard Nation held each third Friday of September. This is the program’s largest fundraiser. In addition to raising funds for Warm Blessings it also raises awareness to poverty and homelessness issues. Participants collect donations to sponsor them “Sleeping in a Box” one night on the Elizabethtown Community and Technical College campus at the Fire Training Station area. Much thanks to the community for great support. Our event is September 15, 2017 with registration starting at 7:00 p.m.
