A Blessed Donation

A blessed contribution – Alan and Eric Taylor are pictured donating items to the Blessing Box on the city’s square on behalf of Beardstown’s First Congregational Church. The church has, as a part of its local mission, made support for the community’s three blessing boxes a priority.  The blessing boxes make small amounts of food and personal hygiene items available to those in need. Signs on the box invite people to take “only what you need” and to “Leave what you can,” and be blessed.  (Photo by Brian DeLoche)
