Spring Drive For Lowcountry Blessing Box Project Update

April 01, 2024

Post Drive Update :

The Daniel Island Community Foundation held a Spring Drive for Lowcountry Blessing Boxes last month which turned out to be a huge success. We had several large boxes, estimated to be over 100 lbs, of nonperishable foods, toiletries, and more being donated and distributed to our local blessing boxes.

We thank you for your continued support!

Original Article:

Studies show adults with food insecurity will skip meals or reduce their portions to provide for children in their homes as they wait for payday. Many food-insecure families do not qualify for the assistance of food banks or are hesitant to turn to food banks for assistance due to the stigma. One “bad month” can be enough to plunge a household into food insecurity. Lay-offs at work, unexpected car maintenance, unforeseen medical bills, or an accident on the job can suddenly force a family to choose between buying food and paying bills. The purpose of this project is to bridge this gap.

The Lowcountry Blessing Box Project has a goal to place and maintain Blessing Boxes around the Lowcountry. Blessing boxes are stocked with non-perishable food items, basic toiletries, baby supplies, and anything else that might be considered a blessing to someone who finds themselves in need. Items are anonymously donated and anonymously received. A simple rule applies – Leave what you can, take what you need.

We had such great success with our fall drive that the Daniel Island Community Foundation will be collecting non-perishable food items, basic toiletries, baby supplies, and anything else that might be considered a blessing again for a spring drive.

Throughout the collection, items donated will be distributed to local Blessing Boxes by our Daniel Island POA staff members and volunteers. If you would like to volunteer to help distribute items to the blessing boxes, please email Dani Stix at

Collection will take place Wednesday, February 28th through Thursday, March 28th so that supplies can be delivered in time for the Spring Break. Please drop off items at the POA office – 130 River Landing Drive, Suite 1C during office hours Monday-Thursday from 9 AM – 4 PM.
