Carl Albert State College admissions specialist Jessica Lloyd recently took on a project to make a difference in the community. In front of the Baptist Collegiate Ministries on the CASC Poteau campus, Jessica has placed Blessing Boxes. According to Jessica, these boxes will help those in the community who are in need of food and/or personal hygiene products. “This will operate on a take what you need, leave what you can system.”

She explained this project was possible through support from CASC President Jay Falkner and also the Poteau Daily News. “The Poteau Daily News donated the boxes for use in this project, and I really appreciate their help.” CASC NASNTI Project Coordinator Micky Solomon has been encouraging Jessica, and stated that Jessica is very passionate about helping those in need. “Jessica hopes these first boxes are just the beginning, and she wants to expand the Blessing Boxes project in the future.”
