There’s something new on the church parking lot! The wooden box, installed on the south side of the Williams Education Building near 9th and Center Streets, will provide donated nonperishable foods and toiletries for those in need. Known as a Blessing Box, it is intended to supplement the local agencies that work to meet the needs of the hungry on a regular basis. The box is available 24/7 to all. The central location of the box also makes it easy for anyone to donate items when it is convenient.
“Take what you need, bring what you can,” is the message displayed on the doors of the box, which was dedicated in a brief ceremony immediately following the Community Palm Sunday Service on Sunday, April 9. In its first week of operation, there have already been both items taken from the box, and items added to the box.
