Cardboard CitySPEAK FOR JUSTICE, STAND UP FOR THE POOR AND DESOLATE! ~Proverbs 31:9
Can you imagine having to live in a cardboard box each night, as so many homeless families do in these United States? We, at Family Promise want to make a statement about how the families we serve endure hardships on their way back from the brink of homelessness.
To do this, participants will create a Cardboard City of box shelters, an event designed to uniquely bring awareness of homeless needs to our community and to assist Family Promise in our mission to help homeless families with children in our Montgomery County community.
Participants will use a cardboard box as their “home” for the evening. To become more aware of homelessness, they will stay one night and wake up the following morning with an appreciation for the support and shelter provided through Family Promise. Participants will experience a soup line supper and be given a place to set up their box “home” outside. In the morning, participants will have breakfast together. Youth groups, businesses and volunteers from around the city can host this event!
