TOM BEAN, Texas -- In November, Tom Bean's mayor set up a "blessing box" outside City Hall.

It's a simple premise: Take what you need and leave what you can.

Since being installed, the blessing box has remained stocked with toothpaste, non-perishable food, and anything else residents feel like donating.

"The intent of that box is to help people on a temporary basis to get through hard times," Mayor Sherry Howard said. "We hope they will share this with other people in our community."

City Hall is located at 201 South Britton Street in Tom Bean.
