We installed blessings boxes number 6, 7, and 8. Although shortly after box 6 was made to be removed by the Huntwyck Home Owner's Association President. See the WDSU video above in regards to this that happened a little later. You can see a map of boxes at map.stphelps.org and learn more about the boxes on the website or in the press release.
After 3 months we were added to the IRS 501c3 Select Check Exemption Search Tool Database which allows us to have Amazon Smile, Ebay for Charities, Paypal for Nonprofits, Donorbox, Guidestar, and a TechSoup 501c3 Validation Token which is required by many other institutions to prove legitimacy and to get Microsoft for Nonprofits and Google For Nonprofit[1|2]. We were accepted to Google For Nonprofit Acceptance which comes with tons of perks which you can read about on their site.
