I can't seem to find an answer to this anywhere, maybe I'm blind.

Do you put a CURSE card in your deck every time a monster makes an attack that adds a CURSE effect? On the flip side, do you add a BLESS card to your deck every time you are targeted by an effect that adds a BLESS?

I ask because the rules say you can only be affected by one instance of a specific condition - that multiple conditions do not stack, (no double poisoned). I thought I read somewhere that BLESS and CURSE are an exception, but I can't find that ruling again.

No limit (Source) other than the physical card limit.

Blessings and curses don't follow that rule because they aren't tracked like poison, wound, stun, etc. Note that those Bless and Curse tokens aren't actually used.

Is there a purpose to the BLESS and CURSE punch board tokens?

There is no limit on how many curses or blessings your character can have. In our last session my GF's Brute got hit with five curses in a single round due to unforseen events. ^.^

can add quite a few blesses in each scenario, certainly one of if not the best support class.

I'll agree, having just unlocked that class, their ability to act as an amazing support seems fantastic (as well as the ability to be a good fighter, if you pick the right cards).

There is another character that you can get which can fill up the enemy deck with curse cards, and it's saved our bacon a few times (pulling 3 curse cards in a row from the enemy deck for 5 damage monsters was a moment we cheered over).
