Painter and muralist Leslie Caneda has found a creative way to get food out to families before the holidays. Caneda, with the help of Redux Contemporary Art Center and Fox Music, transformed an old piano into a colorful blessing box, overseen by North Charleston housing.

The new addition to Verde Village was stocked with food from the Lowcountry Food Bank and Park Circle Cares. Joseph Fox of Fox Music said he wants the color on the piano to bring hope to people reaching inside of it. “And it for me, is a way the instrument can bring a second helping of joy this season,” he said in a press release.
