Building a Blessing Box

Steinbrueck family Blessing Box / Little Free Pantry Safety Harbor, FLDuring the COVID-19 pandemic, our family has been looking for creative things to do together as well as ways we can connect with our neighbors and help those who may be in need.

In addition to canned goods, we also added some toiletry items, and a couple of bibles.

We’re excited to see how God uses this!
