The Blessing Box

In front of C-CAP in Front Royal is a Blessing Box. People are invited to leave items for others who might need them. So far I have donated a couple of small blankets, a hat, socks, and some non-perishable food items.

Larger items I usually take to Goodwill or one of the other thrift stores. Sometimes I wonder this: "If I had to live on things I have given away, how long would I survive?" Probably for a while but I would have to be extremely frugal!


  1. ...neat idea, I could fill it up many times.

  2. Doar faz bem a alma!

    Amei o campo verde com os cavalos.

  3. I like the idea of a "blessing box."

  4. I've never heard of a blessing box. I like that it encourages charity.

  5. As a kid we shared everything unusable with neighbors. Sometimes it came back to you, such as ice skates I remember.

  6. I would leave items there if I ever saw one. A good idea for sure. Thank you for visiting me. betsy

  7. Our community has one of these, but it is bigger. A wonderful idea.

  8. Only American People can think to such blessings, I do admire you so much !

    Wishing you the best of weekends,
    I'm sending my dearest love to you, lovely Linda

    XOXO Dany

  9. What a wonderful idea. We have a few charity shops here in town that we donate to.

  10. Now that is a great idea.

    All the best Jan
