Blessing Buggy vandalized, new signs added
One simple donation can go a long way.
"We try our hardest to help any way we possibly can in the community," said Tammy Schoolcraft.
Tammy is an Assistant Store Manager at Food City.
"I've been here for 31-years myself and if we can help anyway, we do," Tammy pointed out.
Whether you call it a buggy or shopping cart, this basket plays a role in their mission.
"The Blessing Buggy was created to help the blessing boxes throughout the community," explained Tammy.
Recently, someone vandalized the buggy at the Pikeville location, cutting off the signs.
"It is terrible to think that someone could do such a thing," said Tammy.
Food City employees didn't let the thief take their power to help.
"But for all the things that happen that are bad, there's always the good people who come out on top," Tammy pointed out.
Employees added new signs to the new cart.
"Often, people do take (things) for granted and don't really realize the needs for people in the community," said Tammy.
Non-perishable food items often cost around one dollar. Something that seems small to some may mean the most to many.
"It's always here and we appreciate everything that the community does," Tammy pointed out.
Customers can find the "Blessing Buggy" near the front of the store.
Any non-perishable food items are welcome.
