PARSONS, Kan.—The SKIL Resource Center has placed a Mercy Box outside the front doors of its Parsons, Chanute, Columbus, Independence and Sedan locations, offering a variety of free essential necessities including non-perishable food items.

The Mercy Box is available for anyone to access during SKIL’s office hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

“We are all in the Coronavirus pandemic together,” said SKIL President/CEO Shari Coatney. “We wanted to offer this to the public as a “Take what you need, give what you can” opportunity to show that we care. Anyone is welcome to access the Mercy Box, so please stop by and take whatever you might need from it. There is no cost or charge for any item.”

To contribute to the Mercy Box, please bring items to SKIL during its office hours.
