The Family Promise of the Verdugos 2014 Empty Bowl event raised a record $20,000 this month.  Big Thanks to all the volunteer teams that served, the potters that created all the beautiful bowls, the congregation that provided the lovely space, the artists that donated their talents for the art sale, the baskets and items in them that were donated, the musicians that blessed us with their talents, the FPV Board and Empty Bowl committee members that made this all happen, and all that came and enjoyed a wonderful bowl of soup, breads and desserts donated by our wonderful local restaurants. FPV thank all our sponsors and donors that gave cash donations. AMAZING JOB!

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.
