Box City raises awareness about the many homeless families in our own community, and raises money to support Family Promise of SCV. Registered participants are required to pay a $25 registration fee and set a goal to raise $100 in pledges and contributions and sleep overnight in a cardboard box “home” as a resident of Box City. During the course of the event there will be bands, activities, entertainment, and free food for participants.
Box City is open to people of all ages and affiliations. We encourage youth groups, service organizations, school service clubs, community groups, sports teams, Boy and Girl Scouts, etc., to use this event as a community service and learning project. The activities and entertainment are geared toward families, and participants will sleep outdoors in a secure area. A minimum of one adult (age 21 or over) per each seven youth under the age of 18 participating in Box City is required.
