One Verdigris student started a project in Verdigris that’s all about giving back: a Blessing Box.
“A high school student came by with the idea,” said Verdigris town hall employee Brandi Weilert. “She wanted to know if she could put a blessing box outside of city hall to help the community, and we loved the idea.”
She said the box has been in place since January and is getting plenty of use.
“It gets used quite a bit every time I look at it there’s something different in there,” she said. “It was empty last week, posted a pick on Facebook and now it’s full again. It’s so good to see people taking the time to re-fill it and give back to their neighbors that need a little extra help.”
She said the box may be located in Verdigris, but anyone interested in helping keep it stocked, or anyone who needs a little help, is welcome.
