MUNCIE, IN — In the midst of what feels like tragic news at every turn on a national news landscape, a positive light can be found at the corner of East Eighth and South Monroe streets in Muncie.

A little more than a week ago, Jeannetta Presley created a "Blessing Box" and placed it near the end of her front yard. The small black cabinet, resting on a piece of wood and a cinder block, is stocked with non-perishable food items and basic toiletries. The outside is decorated with masking tape, reading "take what you need, bring what you can." Contents of the box include dry pasta, sugar, peanut butter, baby formula, diapers and shampoo.

It Takes A Canadian Village to Raise Rare, Identical Quadruplets

  It Takes A Canadian Village to Raise Rare, Identical Quadruplets With a little help from their neighbors and friends, a Canadian couple raises four identical quadruplets. In the Canadian community of Hythe, population 821, it takes a village to raise a set of rare, identical quadruplets.Abigail, Emily, Grace and Mckayla Webb are about to turn 10 weeks old, and their slightly overwhelmed mother says she is overwhelmingly thankful for the donations and the volunteers who help her manage.People come to her home in two shifts, five days a week. “They do feedings, change diapers, give baths,” Bethani Webb told InsideEdition.com.

“It’s not a lot; it’s a little," Presley said. "But you can take a box of macaroni and cheese, a can of tuna and a can of peas, and you can make a casserole. And it’s out there.”

Presley intends for it to be a sort of revolving door. People who need these goods can take some during times of need. Then, when they get their own money, they can bring back items of equal value.

"Everybody is just trying to survive," she said. "If I can give somebody a dinner for one evening, then I did my part for that day, or if I just added something that they didn’t have to make a dinner, then that’s OK, too.”

She snagged the idea when she was scrolling through Facebook and saw a similar concept at a church in Georgia. She hopes the idea takes off locally, especially at churches that could keep a box going, perhaps, more robustly.
