Community creates 'blessing boxes' to help residents in need

Community members in one Oklahoma town are joining forces to fight hunger through a simple common sense solution. 

Community leaders in Muldrow have created a place to access food and supplied called "blessing boxes." They were established to help residents in need.

The boxes are filled with non perishable items with contributions coming from the community. They are accessible to anyone at any time. 

Anybody in the community that wants to put something in can put something in, and anybody that needs it, can take it out," said one creator Lori Freeman. 

With their community initiative, creators are hoping to inspire others to place their own blessing boxes.
