City of Ponchatoula unveils 'Blessing Box' to help those in need
PONCHATOULA - As many struggle with pandemic-related financial issues, one community in Louisiana has developed a unique way to discreetly support those impacted by food insecurity.
In downtown Ponchatoula, a small pantry has been set up just outside of City Hall.
It's called a "Blessing Box" and citizens are invited to open the pantry and either donate what items they can, or take whatever they need, no questions asked.
A sign below the Blessing Box says, "Take what you need. Give what you can, above all, be blessed."
