"...Good morning just wanted to let you know some friends and I will be setting a Blessing Box between my shop and Giovanni's downtown on Tuesday, August 15 at 6:30 p.m. It's for anybody that needs food or wants to donate non perishable food for those in need.

It's a local effort between myself, Merida and Gene Pack and Cassie Burgess at Glitzy Boutique. Donnie at Giovannis gave us permission to put it on his property.

We can't stand the thought of anyone being hungry and we thought this would be a great way to help those in our community that need food for themselves or their children. If children or teens are hungry they can take what they need to. It's a shame in this day that anybody should be without the food they need.

Ken and Stephanie Akers from For Cakes Sake and Rebel Outfitters of Fort Gay have issued a challenge to local schools. Classes can collect canned good and non perishable items. The class that collects the most gets a free pizza party sponsored by them.

The perfect places for these boxes would be in a well lit area close to a business that has video surveillance. That way if the box is abused or its contents unfairly taken the responsible party would be on video. Also, it would be good to have one placed at city hall/police dept. By doing it this way it should lessen the chance of something bad happening.

Quoting Betcha:
Bet ya that within the first week someone will clean it out and sell the stuff at a yard sale for drug money!!!! Then the next time someone in this town will put graffiti on the box and dump out the contents.


Sad but probably true. This is a great thing for the town but there's always someone that has to destroy the good things that help people or things that are enjoyed by people.

I'm sure the gang that hangs by the pawn shop will enjoy everything that is put in there.
