From the Sun Times:

A few weeks ago, First Presbyterian Church in Ste. Genevieve placed a "Blessing Box" on their front lawn and filled it with non-perishable food and basic toiletries available to any and all who need it. The concept is simple. The box is a miniature food pantry - receiving items from those who want to donate, and offering it to those who need them. Whether you're taking or giving, you can just go to the blessing box. There's not a lock on it - it's open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The idea was found while scrolling through Facebook. Knowing that the church receives calls throughout the week from people needing food at times when the regular food pantry is not open, it seems this might be a welcome addition to the neighborhood.

The wording on the outside of the box says it all - "Take what you need, Bring what you can," but above all, Be Blessed!
