Family Promise 2012 Box City Fundraiser

September 25, 2012

The 4th Annual Cardboard Box City, benefiting Family Promise of East San Fernando Valley, is scheduled for Saturday, September 29 at 2:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. on Sunday, September 30 in the parking lot of the Glendale Church of Christ, located at 2021 W. Glenoaks Blvd., Glendale. This annual event shines a spotlight on the plight of homeless families in our community while giving participants an opportunity to see what it’s like to spend the night without a roof over their heads.

Prospective residents pay a minimum of $15 per person ($10 per person for groups of 10+) to sleep overnight at Cardboard Box City including dinner and a movie. In addition, participants are encouraged to get pledges from their friends, family and co-workers much like a walk-a-thon. Prizes will be awarded for the most creative dwelling and most money raised by an individual. The top fundraiser will be named Mayor of Box City and receive the Key to the City.

Cardboard Box City is open to all ages and affiliations. Service organizations, school service clubs and youth groups are encouraged to use this event as a community service and service-learning project. The activities and entertainment will be geared for families, and participants will sleep outdoors in a secure area. A minimum of one adult for five youth under the age of 18 is required. Bring your own cardboard box home or a pop-up tent (no stakes). There will be a carnival (extra charge), activities, entertainment and food for participants.
