Blessing Box Program
The Blessing Box program operates out of various donated spaces and runs solely on the help of businesses and volunteers. This program is organized through Giant Hearts based in Thunder Bay. Boxes are filled with non-perishable items and other household staples. The boxes are placed in discreet areas of public buildings to ensure the safety and privacy of those people in need of help. Everyone is welcome to donate supplies and take items as needed. The O’Connor Blessing Box can be found outside of the O’Connor Community Centre at 330 Highway 595. For more information on the Blessing Box, or to find out how you can help, please contact Giant Hearts through their Facebook page.
