TINTON FALLS: ‘CARDBOARD BOX CITY’ FUNDRAISER
September 15, 2017, 5:00 pm to September 16, 2017, 8:00 pm
Family Promise of Monmouth County hosts its eighth annual Cardboard Box City, where more than 100 teens and families will gather to raise awareness for homelessness in Monmouth County. Last year, participants raised more than $30,000 for Family Promise, the only non-profit organization specifically helping shelter homeless Monmouth County families.
Participants will include middle and high school students, faith-based youth groups, 4-H and Scouting groups, as well as congregations of all denominations. Each participant will raise $100 or more in pledges to spend the night in their hand-crafted cardboard boxes. Activities include setting up a residence to withstand weather, a soup and bread line for dinner, guest speakers, live music and kids activities.
Funds raised will go to Family Promise’s planned day center at Fort Monmouth.
