East Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry has been a mainstay in the community since 1990, providing food and financial assistance to our Fort Bend neighbors who have nowhere else to turn.
Last year, the Ministry helped over 36,000 residents of Fort Bend County. The value of the food distributed was $885,519.64. The financial assistance program paid out $132,722.07 to help with rent, mortgage or utility bills which prevented families from being evicted from their homes or having utilities disconnected.
To help ensure that the Ministry remains a source of emergency support for Fort Bend County families in crisis we are preparing for our
10th Annual Fort Bend Empty Bowls
Friday, April 12, 2019
6:30 p.m.– 9:30 p.m.
Guests of the event will be served a delicious meal of soup and bread in recognition and support of our neighbors who don’t have enough to eat. Fort Bend Empty Bowls will feature hand-painted bowls which have been donated by local professional artist, Albert Goldreich and other amateur artists in the area. These bowls will be available for purchase. There will also be silent and live auctions. Commissioner James Patterson is serving as the event auctioneer.
Supporting Fort Bend Empty Bowls is a worthwhile investment in the lives of our Fort Bend neighbors who struggle to make ends meet. Last year’s event fund raised over $150,000 for East Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry. Our goal is to raise even more this year to help families in need.
I hope you will consider supporting Fort Bend Empty Bowls. If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
