TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The ribbon has officially been cut on a new community project.

Leadership Tallahassee's 34th class is unveiling four help shelf boxes in the Capital City.

People will be able to donate food and toiletries, and anyone who needs an item can come take one.

The folks behind the help shelves say the goal is to address poverty in the Big Bend Area.

Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum spoke at Monday's event.

The boxes are located in four locations: the Leon County Veteran Services Building, the Jack McLean Community Center, the Big Bend Cares Center and Tallahassee Fire Station No. 12.

Organizers say they plan to add more boxes this fall.
