A Night in the Box with Family Promise!

by | Sep 28, 2017 | Community

Box City is intended to raise money and awareness for Family Promise of SCV and the work they do to help local homeless children and their families. Participants spend the night in a cardboard box at Valencia Heritage Park, to simulate what it might be like if that was the only place they had to call home. The event is open to the public and all ages are welcome.
Participants who register online in advance pay $25 and on-site registration the day of the event is $30. Many participants register as groups and build their own box “villages.” This is a great service opportunity for everyone from youth soccer teams and scout troops to school and church groups. “Residents” are asked to raise a minimum of $100 in pledges from family and friends.
All donations go directly to Family Promise to support our homeless families. Participants will receive a Box City t-shirt and a simple brown paper bag dinner and will enjoy live music, prizes, games and awards for the Best Box Architecture & Design. The Box City resident who raises the most money will be named Mayor and receive a key to Box City.
