Blessing Box

"A Blessing Box connects hearts and hands, weaving a community of generosity and gratitude, where one's gift becomes another's sustenance."

Our Holy Cross Blessing Box is now operational and serving our community. This outdoor pantry provides non-perishable food and essential hygiene items for those in need. If you'd like to contribute, please take a look at the suggestions below. Your donations can be placed in the storage bin found in the Church's entryway.

We also have a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board for the Men’s Group members who wish to volunteer to restock the box. Hygiene items are particularly needed at this time.
