Blessing box placed in Worcester County to provide proper necessities

In Worcester County, one church has created a box that will provide the proper necessities to community members.

The blessing box is currently placed at Bethany Methodist Church in Berlin.

You're probably wondering how it works and it's quite simple.

Anyone can come get these items that are placed in the box. And vice-verse, anyone can come and donate any items as well.

What's inside the box? Things like personal products, food items, and even pet food.

The organizer Merrie Mcelrath says 30% of the people who live in Worcester County lives below the poverty line. And creating a blessing box will better serve them.

Next week, they hope to add school supplies into the box just in time for students heading back to school.

By the end of this year, organizers hope to add five more blessing boxes in the county.
