Would you give up your bed for one night?

Many volunteers and supporters of Family Promise will be!  Join us for a "Box City" event.  We'll be sleeping in cardboard boxes to shine light on the plight of homeless families, and to experience just a taste of it ourselves.  Please join us!

Would you give up your bed for a night…
If doing so could change a child’s life?
… What if it could change yours?

Anyone who has a heart for homeless families: individuals, families, youth groups, etc. Youth under the age of 18 must have a chaperone that is over age 21.

Each participant raises at least $100 in contributions and sleeps overnight in a cardboard box “home” as a resident of our Box City in order to raise awareness of homeless families in our community. There will be activities, entertainment, and food for participants.

“Virtual” residents can participate as well – raise $100, enjoy the evening activities, leave at 10 pm and sleep at home.

There is also a $20 registration fee for all participants.

Friday, September 30th at 6 pm until Saturday, October 1st at 7 am.


Cardboard Box City will be held in the parking lot of Hockessin United Methodist Church, 7250 Lancaster Pike, Hockessin, DE 19707.

More information and forms will be available on our website soon.
