On a sunny Sunday, October 8th, the community came together for a special event that combined fun, food, and fundraising, all in the name of a remarkable cause. Tri-State Liquid Waste, in collaboration with The Community Project, organized a fundraiser to benefit the Community Blessing Boxes. The event was more than just your average fundraiser; it was a touchdown celebration for a cause close to our hearts.
A Celebration in the Making
As the event kicked off, attendees were treated to live music from the talented local band, HOODOO JIVE, which set the stage for an afternoon of camaraderie and giving. The aroma of delicious wings filled the air, courtesy of generous sponsors. It was an atmosphere of unity and community spirit, where people came together to make a difference in the lives of those who need it the most.
Supporting a Worthy Cause
The Community Blessing Boxes project is an inspiring initiative aimed at helping our local homeless population. Its mission is simple yet profound: to provide food and essential supplies directly to those who need them the most. Many homeless individuals prefer to remain out of the spotlight, avoiding shelters and food pantries, making it challenging to access the vital resources they require.
The Community Blessing Boxes take a unique approach by bringing these necessities directly to the people who need them. These boxes are strategically placed at various locations, including the Tanner's Creek boat ramp, behind Hamline Chapel in Lawrenceburg, the Aurora Dog Park, and Lesko Park in Aurora. They stand as beacons of hope, offering food, toiletries, and other essentials to those in need, 24/7.
The Generosity Shines
One of the highlights of the event was the house tour and raffle, which saw the enthusiastic participation of attendees. The funds raised during these activities, combined with the community's generous contributions, culminated in a significant sum.
Tri-State Liquid Waste presented a check to The Community Project for a whopping $3,230. This impressive amount will undoubtedly go a long way in furthering the mission of the Community Blessing Boxes and ensuring that even more individuals in our community receive the support they need.
