1. Since this box was going to be used to collect cash money and envelopes in a parish, it needed cloth to be attached to the inside of the box so that the cash, coins and envelopes did not fall out.
2. A laundry bag was doubled over and placed inside the box.
3. Then, 1/2 inch nails were used to secure it to the top and outside of the box.
4. A orange paint pen was used to sign it at the bootm.
