060823 blessing box

SJNT staff

POINT BLANK — Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace Kim Webb is looking to give more to her county than being a JP.

Webb said she has noticed many people on social media were in need of essentials like food and diapers, so she and some others came up with the idea to create boxes that would have essential resources — all for free.

To facilitate that, Precinct 4 now has a blessing box outside the office, which is located at 225 Boat Launch Road in Point Blank. She said her group is in the very early stages of developing the program.

To help move things along, Webb is seeking help from the community, and would like residents to donate non-perishable items, such as canned goods, and all manner of hygiene products would also be welcome.

Web said all donations will be for anyone who is in need, and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and she said she hopes the program will grow to be a blessing to the community.

The program will be registered soon at www.littlefreepantry.org, which also has other ideas for helping the less-fortunate.

For information, contact the judge’s office at (936) 377-2131.
