17,810 people are food insecure in Wilson County. 5,380 are children under 18.*
Since planting the Blessing Box in October 2022, we are replenishing the box at least 3 times a week. When stocked with ready-made food kits or personal hygiene products, the Blessing Box is emptied nightly.
The need is great, but God is greater!
We'd love for you with your family, your friends, or your co-workers to place any of the items below in the Blessing Box as you feel led. You may also bring them to the church office to donate to our stock supply when the box becomes depleted or "adopt" the Blessing Box for a week by signing up in the church office or using the Sign Up Genius below.
How it works!
These items are popular, but all non-perishable items are welcome. Most importantly, we ask that you pray for the individuals and families receiving your generous donations. Thank you for supporting the people in our community!
Ready-Made Foods: soups, pre-made tuna kits, granola bars, beanies & weenies, etc.
Peanut Butter & Crackers
Personal Hygiene Products: toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, pads, tampons, soap, shampoo
Canned Meat, Fruit, Veggies (pop tops are best!)
Pasta with sauce, Mac & Cheese
"When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things." Mark 6:34
We invite you to reflect upon Jesus as you fill the Blessing Box, especially if your children are helping! Jesus met the physical needs of people before He met their spiritual needs - He fed the 5000 (Matt 14:13-21), He healed the blind man (Mark 10:46-52), He healed the bleeding woman (Luke 8:43-48) and more! What does it mean to be the hands and feet of Jesus? Who are we helping when we fill the Blessing Box? How are we being like Jesus when we fill the Blessing Box? What do we get when we fill the Blessing Box? What else can we do to help others?
