Birdseye Branch Library manager AmyJo Lytle planned and organized the blessings box with Birdseye Outreach Club to help supply the community with food, blankets, personal items and books. "It's not just for feeding the bodies and keeping them warm for the winter, but feeding the mind with our books that are no longer used at the library," Lytle said. "We hope that we can share our blessings with everyone."
