Empty Bowls raises $10,750 to combat hunger
The numbers are in. New Richmond Empty Bowls raised more than $10,750 for Five Loaves Food Shelf and the New Richmond Backpack Program.
That's $2,550 more than last year's $8,200.
"When I saw the early numbers I was very surprised," said Cheryl Emerson, director of Community Ed and co-chair of Empty Bowls. "We're very happy with the results and money is still coming in."
