Please help keep Blessings Box stocked!

The Outreach Committee has stocked the new Blessings Box, located near the church driveway exit.

   

The Blessings Box (also known as a Free Little Pantry in some communities), is a tool for neighbors to help neighbors. The box will be stocked with an assortment of items, including nonperishable foods, baby diapers and supplies, as well as basic household supplies and personal care items.

 

The box is a place community members may take something they need or donate something for others. All can be done at one’s convenience, and anonymously. Donations may also be left in the basket in the church foyer. All items must be sealed and within expiration dates.


Special thanks to the owners at Shag Bark for their generosity with a discount on the materials for the box, as well as assembly of the box.


Take a blessing, bring a blessing, be a blessing!
