Pueblo School For the Arts and Sciences Empty Bowls Fundraiser
Pueblo School for the Arts and Sciences and Legacy Bank come together each year to make a difference in the lives of Puebloans who have been forgotten through homelessness. The children of PSAS learn that they can have a positive impact in their community through their artwork by handcrafting ceramic bowls.
The unique ceramic bowls are later sold at the PSAS Empty Bowls event as a Pueblo County fundraiser to assist Posada, Pueblo Community Soup Kitchen, and the Wayside Cross Gospel Rescue Mission. During the event, patrons can fill their bowls with soups from area restaurants while enjoying musical and dance entertainment from some of Pueblo’s diverse children’s groups.
Legacy Bank’s involvement helps the school to be ensure all proceeds are able to go directly to the selected charities making the biggest financial impact on the homeless population in Pueblo and surrounding communities. To date, PSAS’s Empty Bowls event has touched thousands of lives with donations of almost $200,000.
