YouthBuild Columbus Community School has been a proud partner of the Columbus Blessing Boxes Project since 2017.

Constructions students have built and placed several Blessing Boxes in the surrounding community, including the Blessing Box in front of the school.

​Staff, students, and the community work together to keep the Blessing Box full of food through fundraisers, food drives, and acquiring donations. The Blessing Box located at the front entrance of the school provides meals to community members in need with only one rule, "leave what you can, take what you need.”
