On Sept. 28, 2012 Family Promise will host its third annual Cardboard Box City as a way to promote awareness of the plight of homeless families while raising funds for its programs. CBC "residents" will sleep in their own cardboard boxes on the grounds of the Monmouth Church of Christ, Tinton Falls, and wait in line for a meal of soup and bread on Friday. There will be speakers, activities and entertainment for participants. Prizes will be given to the participants who raise the most money and to the most creative dwelling. Cardboard Box City is open to youth groups from local coangregations, schools and scout troops, as well as famiies with children. Participants supply their own dwellings - large refrigerator or washer/dryer boxes which can be picked up at appliance stores - and decorate them to represent home sweet home. Participants raise $100 or more to secure a spot for their box. FPMC is currently seeking sponsors for this unique and inspirational event. For more information contact Tracy Boyer @ Family Promise, 732-495-1050 or Tracy@familypromisemc.org.
