Pull Quote (200 Character Max): 
“The Project fulfills dual roles. One is for the benefit of the person who is struggling, who in turn learns the value of taking ownership of something in his or her community. The second purpose is to help reduce the cultural stigma of substance use, mental illness and homelessness by encouraging community members to participate in filling Karma Boxes with needed items.” ~ Karma Box Project Founder Grant Denton
Story Summary (100 Character Max): 
Karma Boxes are starting to pop up all over town, providing non-perishable food, first aid and toiletries to those in need. The Karma Box Project can best be summed up by its slogan, “If it is empty, fill it. If you need it, it is yours.”

Some say the best karma is giving to those who need it most. Karma Boxes are starting to pop up all over town, providing non-perishable food, first aid and toiletries to those in need. The Karma Box Project can best be summed up by its slogan, “If it is empty, fill it. If you need it, it is yours.”
