Cardboard Box City in Belvidere

Join the United Presbyterian Church of Belvidere and their supporting churches for the First Annual Box/Tent City at the Courthouse Square in Belvidere. 

The event will be held from 6 pm on Friday, May 31st until 2 pm on Saturday, June 1st.

The purpose will be to bring the homeless situation in Warren County to the Attention of the public. 

We invite you to share this information with your youth group and adults interested in participating. Each participant will need to provide their own shelter, and groups will need to provide all-night adult supervision. 

A variety of activities are scheduled for Friday evening and Saturday morning. Saturday is the town-wide Belvidere yard sale. Spaces are being rented around the park, and we can help renters unload their wares. 

An evening meal and breakfast will be provided for all participants.

Prior to the event, there will be a meeting of all groups (date to be announced). Participants are also encouraged together sponsors, with all proceeds to benefit Family Promise of Warren County. There will also be a contest for the best decorated "home."

Please direct any questions to Whitney or Ann Rogers at 908-475-5085, or Missions at United Presbyterian Church of Belvidere at 908-475-2771.
