A Blessing Upon You: Take what you need Give what you can

Posted on Thursday, May 7, 2020 at 4:04 pm

Located across the street from Larry and Nancy Nation’s home at 704 W. Bland St., a Blessing Box filled with canned goods, dry foods, and toiletry items are free for anyone who needs them. Nancy Nation, and her daughter, Kelly Nation-Mink, came up with the idea after reading what other towns were doing during the pandemic. Nancy’s husband, Larry, spent a day building the box, then he cemented it in place across the street from their house. Contributions are accepted, and a lockbox is attached to the Blessing Box for cash donations.
Contact Larry at 573-594-3159 for more information.
