Empty Bowls

Centennial Hall


April 28, 2019 5:00 P.M. - 7:00 P.M.


The Staff and Board of The Glory Hall cordially invite you to Empty Bowls, the annual fundraiser for the center. 


As you know, the Glory Hall is a short-term, temporary emergency shelter for men, women, and children in Juneau. In addition to providing shelter, they are also a soup kitchen, pantry program, and care center. The Glory Hall is open 365 days a year and is the last safety barrier between hunger, cold and complete hopeless despair for many of those less fortunate among us. 


Empty Bowls is a true community fundraiser. Local restaurants donate soup, a local

baker donates bread, and local artisans donate beautifully crafted bowls. Plus, COOKIES!


Music provided by Full Circle Music and Aurora Strings. 


There will be a silent auction, dessert auction and new this year, Alaska Probiotics kombucha available for purchase. 


Please join us on April 28th from 5 – 7 p.m. at Centennial Hall for delicious soups, fresh-baked bread, and everyone takes home a gorgeous, handcrafted bowl.  Tickets are available online through The Glory Hall or you may purchase at Hearthside Books.

Cooperative Youth Group

Our Cooperative Youth Group continues to meet on Sundays at 5:15 p.m. at Northern Light United Church. 


During the month of March, we plan to have students from the Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study (YES) program attend our youth group for dialogue and information sharing.  The purpose of the program is to create relationships and bridges with families and individuals from Muslim countries.  These relationships create lasting bonds in our community.  We have students in our congregations from Egypt and Pakistan.  For more information, this is the website (, and an excerpt has been copied below.  More information will follow for this event.  


“The Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study (YES) program was established by Congress in October 2002 in response to the events of September 11, 2001. The program is funded through the U.S. Department of State and sponsored by the Bureau of Educational & Cultural Affairs (ECA) to provide scholarships for high school students from countries with significant Muslim populations to spend up to one academic year in the United States. Students live with host families, attend high schools, and engage in activities to learn about American society and values, acquire leadership skills, and help educate Americans about their countries and cultures.”

Douglas Community UMC Food Pantry Needs


Food Pantry Hours!

Wednesdays:  2:00 to 4:00 P.M.


Fridays:  2:00 to 4:00 P.M.


Based on the needs of our current clients, we have noticed that some of what we’ve been stocking is not usable because our clients do not have access to kitchen facilities, etc.  They are homeless and are unable to heat or cook food. We have revised our needs lists to reflect these changes, based on their requests.


  • Canned protein: (Tuna, Spam, Chicken, Turkey, salmon, etc. Pouches work well, too.)
  • Canned meals (Beef Stew, Spaghetti, Ravioli, mac and cheese; the pop-top cans work the best)
  • Peanut Butter (small jars)
  • Canned soup
  • Crackers
  • Canned vegetables
  • Canned fruits & applesauce
  • Dry Cereal & Packets of Oatmeal
  • Milk (canned & dry)
  • Ramen noodles
  • Granola Bars
  • Small jars of Mayonnaise (to go with the tuna)
  • Bread

We have a freezer in the Food Pantry and we can accept the following items for distribution:

  • Fresh Bread
  • Rolls
  • Buns
  • Cheese
  • Small Packages of Stew Meat
  • Chicken
  • Ground Meat
  • Lunch Meats
  • Fish
  • Hot Dogs

The Southeast Food Bank, where we shop weekly, is very low on food and we will need supplement elsewhere.  Any and all donations of food are appreciated; we cannot accept or distribute food that has expired or food that has been opened or home-canned or preserved.   

If you are unable to shop, monetary donations are accepted, as well.  Thanks in advance for your generosity!
