Empty Bowls Monongalia:

Empty Bowls 2Robinette Legal Group, PLLC is a glad supporter of Empty Bowls Monongalia. This project seeks to provide support for organizations that combat hunger while also promoting awareness about local hunger issues. Since its beginning as a high school arts project in Michigan in 1990, Empty Bowls events have raised millions of dollars toward ending hunger.

Morgantown WV Empty BowlsThe basic premise of an Empty Bowls event is simple: guests are served soup in a handmade ceramic bowl in exchange for a cash donation to fight hunger. They are asked to keep their bowl as a reminder of the meal's purpose. Every time they take the bowl from the cupboard, they will be reminded that someone's bowl is always empty and that on that one occasion they helped alleviate hunger and could choose to do so again at any time.

Ronald McDonald House Charities:

We are pleased to support Ronald McDonald House Charities of Morgantown in the process of constructing a new area within the WVU Children's Hospital to serve as a place of comfort and convenience for those families receiving care within the hospital. The new Ronald McDonald Family Room will provide a place for families to relax, nap, shower, eat, and care for other children just steps from the Pediatric ICU. If you have ever spent time at the hospital with young, healthy children, it is easy to imagine how this new, well-planned facility will help families through long and difficult days.

We support United Spinal Association's mission to improve the quality of life of all people living with spinal cord injuries and disorders (SCI/D).

United Spinal was founded in 1946 by a determined group of paralyzed WWII veterans in New York City who advocated for greater civil rights and independence for themselves and their fellow veterans. Since then, their core belief has remained unchanged. Despite living with SCI/D, a full, productive, and rewarding life is within the reach of anyone with the strength to believe it and the courage to make it happen.

Each year, United Spinal helps thousands of wheelchair-users, veterans, and people with multiple sclerosis and other spinal cord disorders overcome the daily challenges of living with a disability. They extend support to those most important in their lives-- their family members and caregivers.
