Make a Donation

Our organization always appreciates the generosity and involvement of people like you, with every contribution going towards helping Lowcountry Blessing Box Project make a difference in our community. 

 

Thank you for your support!

Build Your Own Box

Anyone can build a Blessing Box. There are no specifications required as to size, shape or color. Location is of the utmost importance. Please see our map and do not place your box near an existing location.  Ideally, you'd put the box somewhere folks can safely pull off of the road to take things out or put them in. Make sure you've sought the proper permissions if you don't own the land and check if there's an HOA.
Let us know when you're finished building and send us some photos. We will send you a decal and a metal disclaimer plate, add you to our list of locations and help you promote your Blessing Box.

Volunteer Your Time

We believe the best way for our initiatives to be successful is for the community to actively get involved. Check our Facebook page for events or make your own. We are always looking for people to host food drives!

Donate From Home

If you want to donate from your couch, in your pajamas, we won't judge you. In fact, we made an Amazon wish list!

Who We Are

Our goal is to place and maintain Blessing Boxes around the Lowcountry. Blessing boxes are stocked with non-perishable food items, basic toiletries, baby supplies, and anything else that might be considered a blessing to someone who finds themselves in need. Items are anonymously donated and anonymously received. A simple rule applies - Leave what you can, take what you need.

 

Studies show adults with food insecurity will skip meals or reduce their portions to provide for children in their homes as they wait for pay day. Many food insecure families do not qualify for the assistance of food banks, or are hesitant to turn to food banks for assistance due to the stigma. One "bad month" can be enough to plunge a household into food insecurity. Lay-offs at work, unexpected car maintenance, unforeseen medical bills, or an accident on the job can suddenly force a family to choose between buying food and paying bills. This is the purpose of our project- to bridge this gap. Thank you for your ongoing support.
