For what it's worth, Henry offered this:
for the red bad... with the proviso... "maybe?"
I'm going to play my age for the moment... create a table to do the same thing as those 3 boxes. Put it inside a content box. Make each box you have now a simple table row.
The problem I see is that .content is overriding each element with 15px padding. So, we need to customize the padding for each. Your class is actually applied inside the box. We need something to tie together each and set the padding top or bottom for the individual boxes. Tough call.
Tables! Great for boxes and dinner!

Lest we forget, you are my age! Our British colleagues aren't the only ones working weekends. They just wake up earlier than we do.

Okay, this isn't quite the solution you want but it's closer.
In Dashboard > PageLines > Templates > Morefoot place both Boxes and Morefoot sidebars with Boxes taking top position. Inside the Morefoot, you'll have to add multiple text boxes.
In Custom Code > CSS Rules, add and modify the colors in this:
Admittedly, it causes the boxes anywhere else to be the same color. And it makes the color go site-wide. BUT, it did get rid of the white space. One small accomplishment.
I must admit you've stumped not only me, but it seems my colleagues with this one, though it appears something we should work on - a means of easily providing the background color of a section and on a particular page. I'm going to put that in my weekly report. I know that doesn't do you much good right now and humbly apologize for it. I suppose I'll have to bake a pie of crow.

I do appreciate your loyalty to the company (and all that....). I too have some (misguided?) loyalty to my brand also. Sunday is coming to a close and a glass of Liberty School awaits!
Thanks you kindly for attentiveness to this CSS dilemma of mine.

I'm presuming you're fiddling again!
