Stark Blessing Box Initiative Leadership


Maiharriese Wooden

Maiharriese Wooden is the Founder of Stark Blessing Box Initiative. She is also the Community Outreach Director at First Christian Church – Canton where she helps with their food pantry and clothing ministry, Common Goods. Maiharriese is a mother of two adult daughters, grandmother of five, and is strong in her faith.

Maiharriese has had personal experiences with daily challenges with food insecurity and this has encouraged her to start the Stark County Blessing Box initiative. She has been called by the Lord to begin this and has placed numerous boxes in the Stark county area helping hundreds of Ohio residents a year provide food for their families.

Her obedience and faith the Lord is very important to her and her mantra in life is, “To follow Jesus’ example in caring for the disadvantaged and suppressed while guiding them toward the transformational love of Christ.”
