Cardboard Box City is a public outreach event which also serves as one of our biggest fundraisers. Participants sleep in “homes” made from cardboard boxes to bring awareness to the plight of the homeless families to our community. Participants raise funds by gathering pledges for Family
Promise of North Idaho. The money raised is used to offset the operational costs of delivering services to homeless families.
You can also help by serving on the event committee which needs people to sign up for set-up, clean-up, getting things donated (snacks, soup, bread, breakfast items) entertainment, collecting cardboard boxes, advertising, poster making, sponsor getting, registration, security, and lots of other fun things. We also need youth groups and chaperones to participate!
If you would like more information about this event or if you wish to volunteer to work on the committee, contact Ali at firstname.lastname@example.org.
