Spend the night in a box, so a homeless family doesn’t have to!

Save the Date!

Join Family Promise North Shore Boston

on Friday, August 11th, 2017

at Patton Park in Hamilton

for our first Cardboard Box City

overnight event!

Children make up

one out of every four

homeless persons.

Cardboard Box City is designed for young people, groups and families to help raise awareness about the increasing challenge of family homelessness in our community and to help raise funds to support the work of Family Promise. Family Promise exists to help homeless children and their families make the transition from homelessness to economic independence.

We invite you, your family, club, sports team or organization to participate in this exciting event!

WHEN

Friday, August 11th  at 6:00 pm to Saturday, August 12th at 8:00 am Rain or Shine!

WHERE

Patton Park, Hamilton MA

WHY

To generate awareness about the number of homeless families in our own community and to raise money for Family Promise North Shore Boston, an organization that helps homeless families become self-sufficient.

HOW

Register and collect contributions of at least $100 to attend. You don’t have to spend the night; just come for the program portion if you choose. If you stay over, bring a large box, a tarp, blankets, a pillow or sleeping bag.

Individuals, families or groups spend the night in a cardboard box they bring and decorate. There will be activities, entertainment and presentations throughout the evening related to family homelessness.

Gather your family, friends & co-workers!

Raise $100 per person to attend

Contact us if you think this is a great idea, or if you lead a group that would like to participate! Our committee could use more volunteers!

We hope you will join us to help

“End homelessness, one family at a time.”
