Columbia County HEALTH Coalition members on Wednesday officially dedicated a new “Blessing Box” overlooking S. Jackson Street at Greater Harvest Church of God in Christ in Magnolia. The idea for the box was conceived over the past few months by the coalition as an easy way to distribute non-perishable foods to the hungry on a 24-hour per day basis. The structure was built and installed by VFW Post 4554 members of Camden, with Greater Harvest Church serving as the home base for the charitable venture. The first food donation was provided by a recent Kindred Hospice food drive. The church and coalition members encourage anyone to: “Take what you need, leave what you can.” Pictured are: (back row, L-R) HEALTH Coalition of Columbia County members Tyler Turner of LifeTouch Hospice, Lynne Kemp of Kindred at Home, Patricia Bullard of Community Compassion Center of Magnolia, DeAnna O’Malley of Arkansas Department of Health, and Greater Harvest Church of God in Christ Pastoress Wondrous Roach and Pastor Larry Roach; (front row, L-R) HEALTH Coalition members Deb Carter Cash of Community Compassion Center of Magnolia, Barbara Lewis of The Caring Place, and Nancy Bailey of Area Agency on Aging.
