Our View: Empty Bowls shows giving spirit lives on
The results are in and they're impressive.
The second annual Empty Bowls fund raiser was held March 2 and more than $10,750 was raised to benefit the Five Loaves Food Shelf and the Happy Kids Backpack Program.
The fact that the Empty Bowls volunteers were able to expand upon their success of last year is a major accomplishment. In these tough economic times, all people raising funds for a good cause have got to wonder how things will shake out in the end.
