You have probably seen a Lowcountry Blessing Boxes placed at a churches, homes, or businesses around South Carolina...especially since there are currently ONE HUNDRED active ones 🎉
The 100th box was installed this week at Charity AME Church in Huger. If you haven't heard of Lowcountry Blessing Box, it was a project that began in 2017 to help families struggling with food insecurities. These blessing boxes are stocked with nonperishable food items, toiletries, baby supplies, and anything else that could be a blessing to someone in need. Items are taken and donated anonymously. There is only one rule:
Leave what you can, take what you need.
It's also really simple to create a blessing box of your own. There are no size, color, or shape specifications. The only requirement is that the box be placed in a location that is easy accessible from the road, and not near any other blessing boxes. Once you're finished, send pictures of your box to Lowcountry Blessing Box Project and you will receive a decal and metal disclaimer plate, and be added to the map of box locations.
