In late 2020, ATA Bus wanted to find a way to help give back to the Manhattan Community. During this time, the Riley County Food and Farm Council had offered a prebuilt “Blessing Box” to us if we would like to sponsor it and arrange for it to be placed on the West side of Manhattan.
Through coordination with the Westloop Business Association, Brixmor Property Group, KS State Bank and JP Enterprises, the Blessing Box was installed in the Westloop Parking lot in December of 2020. Since that time, the Blessing Box has confirmed that there was a need for assistance in this area as it is used daily.
Beginning in 2021, ATA Bus sought out other Westloop Businesses to help sponsor the Blessing Box for one month at a time. Many businesses have reached out and volunteered to do so and it has been tremendously successful in helping keep it stocked. Below you can find a list of our current monthly sponsors!
If you are interested in giving back to the community also, stocking the Blessing Box is a great way to do so! There are some helpful instructions below, along with a list of all of the Blessing Boxes located throughout Manhattan so you can find a location that works best for you!
A big thank you to our current Blessing Box Sponsors!
