BLESSING BOX — Tiffiny Crews of Union City takes a peek to check out the non-perishable food donations left inside the Blessing Box, located on the back side of Reelfoot Shopping Center, directly behind the old Super D building, now The Gallery, off West Reelfoot Avenue in Union City. The box contains donated food which is available free of charge to anyone in need in the community. The idea is for people to donate non-perishable food or hygiene items, simply by placing them inside the box, and for those in need to take whatever they need from the box — with both the giving and the receiving being anonymous. The sign on the front has the message, “Take what you need, leave what you can, above all be blessed! Matthew 25:35.” The Blessing Box concept was started in Ardmore, Okla., and Mrs. Crews felt God leading her to start one locally after she read about it on Facebook.
