St. Luke Community Clinic, Home to “Blessings Box”
22 December 2016 News
Through the hard work of Carol Vorous and Jim Coats, the St. Luke Community Clinic is now home to a “Blessings Box.” The box is located outside of the clinic, in the front yard and is ready for use. An official dedication ceremony is slated to take place after Christmas or sooner if it can be arranged. The idea of the “Blessings Box” is for people to take what they need, bring what they can, and to generally be blessed. The community can bring non-perishable items such as canned goods, personal hygiene products, diapers, formula, and other items people might need and place them in the box. Those in need can come by and take what they are in need of.
Carol Vorous had the idea to create the box after seeing posts through Facebook but was not sure how to make it happen. She later saw Jim Coats woodworking items on his account. Although she had never met him, she asked for his help with the project and he agreed. From there, Vorous asked Vicki Davis, the Executive Director of the St. Luke Community Clinic, to place the box in the clinic’s yard. She immediately agreed. Everything fell into place to make the project a success.
To make a donation or if you or someone you know are in need, the “Blessings Box” is located at 316 North Royal Avenue in Front Royal.
