The Box of Hope (Aired on April 25, 2021)

Rachel Sawner and Tracy Keck of the First Presbyterian Crunch in Pleasant Valley visit RadioRotary to tell the story of the church’s Box of Hope, available 24/7 for anyone who needs it. The solar powered wooden Box with a tin roof, which Rachel built, contains donated personal care and hygiene products, first- aid kits, bottled water, and even pet food, all free for the taking by anyone. Donations to The Box can be made through the Church or by collection sites at the Pleasant Valley Free Library and at Innate Chiropractic of Wappingers Falls. The items are primarily those not available through SNAP (food-stamp program) or with EBT Cards from NYS. The Box is accessible outside the Church every day all day and night. It supplements the items available from local Food Pantries.
