So, I was just watching the news this evening, and realized I needed to do a blog post. If I hadn't seen this excellent idea on the news, I wouldn't be blogging tonight. Thank you Lester Holt!
Anyway, this idea on the news was quite a simple, yet great one: a box set up on a sidewalk, like a mailbox, except it had food in it, donated by people; Anyone who needed food, but didn't have nearly enough money, could go to the "Blessing Box" and take their next meal from it. But it didn't just stop at food. It also contained diapers, toothpaste, soap, and other toiletries and personal care objects.
I, living in a large town/small-ish city, haven't seen these on any corners. However, I highly encourage you to find one in your town or on your corner. There isn't one? Build one. It's simple things like this that bring communities together. These small things in your community are more of what America needs right now.
