BrickHouse is a proud participant to
Empty Bowls for HOPE Community Services
Empty Bowls.. and it's roots:
Starting back in 1990 in Michigan as a high school art class project to raise funds for a food drive, students made ceramic bowls, served a meal of soup and bread, and invited guests to keep the bowls as a reminder of hunger in the world.
This project has evolved into a massive world-wide program through support for food banks, soup kitchens, and other similar organizations...all to to fight hunger.
Thank you to all who participated in the Empty Bowl for Hope project. Over 50 bowls were collected!
