Payton’s Blessing Box

Scott County True Value Hardware November Deals of the Month

By Tammy Moore Teague

Nine year-old Payton Mahar asked her parents, Michael and Candace Mahar, a question they simply did not know how to answer. “My daughter asked why Waldron didn’t have a blessing box,” explained Candace Mahar. “Her dad and I didn’t know the answer.” 

Homemade blessing boxes have sprang up throughout communities such as Mansfield and Huntington. They offer to help, or bless, those who may be in need by providing non perishable food items. She had seen one of the boxes in Huntington and was curious about them.

That curiosity sparked interest as she began researching online. The fourth grade student took her request to her father. Her father, of course, obliged her charitable request and constructed a box similar to one she had found. “We now have Payton’s Blessing Box in our front yard,”  her mom said. “She is so excited and has been working on filling it.”

If you would like to help Payton Mahar, contribute or have a need, the box is located at 1448 Elm Street in Waldron.
