Generous Hands to open second blessing box

Generous Hands, which opened a Blessing Box at its 606 Spruce Street office in March, will open a second one at Portage Terrace this month. The Blessing Boxes contain non-perishable food and hygiene items contributed to Generous Hands and are restocked by volunteers several times a week.

The new location at 11247 Portage Rd. is between T and U Avenues.

Items to be placed in the boxes can be delivered to the Spruce Street office. Food items needed include soups and canned pasta, mac-n-cheese, granola bars, cereal bars, small boxes of cereal, fruit cups, peanut butter, jelly and individually wrapped snacks. Hygiene items needed include bar soap, shampoo, feminine hygiene items, deodorant, toothbrushes and toothpaste, disposable razors and toilet paper.

Executive Director Sheri Louis called the boxes “a way for neighbors to help neighbors. We look forward to placing more Blessing Boxes in the Vicksburg community.”

Those who would like to volunteer to stock the Portage Terrace Blessing Box may contact Generous Hands by email at ghblessingbox@gmail.com or call (269)370-7965, and find more information at http://www.generoushands.org/blessing.

Donations can be delivered to the 606 Spruce St location.
