Shane Meats completes “Blessing Box” for Downtown Rock Springs
The Rock Springs Main Street/Urban Renewal Agency (URA) office at 603 S Main Street is now home to a “Blessing Box” for those in need. Shane Meats built the box as his Eagle Scout project. He's been working on the box for quite some time and completed it with the help of some donated materials from Home Depot, Bloedorn Lumber Company and CJS SIGNS.
While Shane did most of the work on the project, he was aided by his parents and his older brother, Cole.
The idea for the box come from URA administrative assistant Terri Nations and Shane thought it would be a wonderful way to help the community.
Shane has been in scouting since he was 7 years old. He's a sophomore at Rock Springs High School. His parents are Tracy and Chris Meats.
The community is encouraged to use the box responsibly. Those who can, are also encouraged to leave non-perishable food items or personal hygiene items for those less fortunate.
