Blessing box in Colton

Colton United Methodist Church has brought a food pantry to their front yard. The box, which stands in front of the church, allows anyone in the community who is in need a chance to easily and anonymously pick up donated items anytime day or night, the church said in a press release. People are donating essentials to help fulfill short-term basic needs for those who don’t always have access to them - everything from non-perishable food to toiletries and baby care items, the church said.
