3 Cardboard Box City Events Planned This Year

Family Promise of Warren County and the Interfaith Hospitality Network are once again honored to be the donor recipient of not one, but three, Cardboard Box City events in 2014.   

Many Warren County families face serious challenges to housing stability. Some need comprehensive services to end their homelessness and secure affordable housing.

While many will be warm and dry inside their homes, this Spring and Summer teenagers in 3 Warren County communities will be outside raising awareness of family homelessness and raising money for Family Promise of Warren County. 

This idea of a cardboard box city has become more popular as a way for youth groups to raise funding and awareness of homelessness.
