"With extra time on her hands and a few hours still necessary toward her Christian service goal, Jonesburg resident Brooke Hellebusch turned to her father, Nick, for his creative input.

"Having had her senior year cut short by COVID-19, the St. Francis Borgia student was presented with a unique opportunity to focus her project on timely needs. Through the collaborate minds of a dad and daughter and the handiwork of the entire family, the Blessing Barn came to life.

"It wasn’t an original idea — rather one duplicated from community efforts in Washington, Mo.

'“I grew up in Washington and there are about half a dozen around town that have really helped out a lot of people down there,” said Nick. “Knowing how things are going in our world, I thought our little community could use something like this.”

"The custom-made food pantry perhaps could not have come at a better time. Perched in front of the Jonesburg City Hall, the Blessing Barn is a small wooden structure that contains non-perishable items and supplies for those in need.

'“It’s in a really good spot where every time I drive by it, I get that same feeling of satisfaction,” said Brooke. “It’s such a good feeling to know that it could help even one person. I think that’s what makes it so special.”' ~ Warrenton Record, By: Derrick Forsythe, 5/12/2020
