The Kankakee Area Jaycees will be accepting monetary donations and items to fill the Blessings Boxes all around the greater Kankakee, Bradley, Bourbonnais, Momence, and Grant Park area. The point of the Blessings Boxes is for the community members to come take what they need and replace it with something for someone else if they can. Our Blessings Boxes have been struggling to stay full over the last couple of months, so this is where you come in!

We are looking for the following items:
-Breakfast bars, granola bars, fruit snacks, or any snacks that can stand being inside of a box that sits outside.
-Shampoo, conditioner, shaving cream, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and hygiene products for both men and women.
-If you don’t want to donate items, we are taking monetary donations of any kind for which we will use to purchase items to put in the Blessings Boxes, our goal is 100 dollars to be used at Dollar Tree and Walmart.

The Jaycees will run the fundraiser through the end of June to collect items and monetary donations for the aforementioned items.
