We have had a blessing box outside of City Hall for about a year. The original donated box has served us well for almost a year, but it was now time to expand our capacity. Today, the new and improved blessing box has been installed and restocked. This is a labor of love for anyone needing help.
This well-built cabinet should serve us well for many years! Special thanks to the Tom Bean Public Works Department, Steve Dane, William Cobert, Dakota Bomsburger, Mary Ann Starnes, husband of Mayor Howard Larry Howard, and Shauna Bradshaw for organizing the blessing box for us.
We are asking that people drop off donations to City Hall and we will store them in our kitchen until we get the additional shelves installed.
We are in need of breakfast items. In addition, these are the items most commonly donated and used to stock the Blessing Box:
- Canned food with ring-pulls
- Hand warmers
- Toilet paper
- Non-perishable foods
- Bottled water
- Small snacks
- Toiletries, including hand soap, toothbrushes, and toothpaste
- Baby wipes
