Cardboard Box City 2012

This past weekend, my church hosted Cardboard Box City 2012. Cardboard Box City is a fundraiser for Family Promise, "an non-profit, interfaith hospitality network working toward providing transitional assistance for families with children experiencing homelessness".

Participants created their cardboard box "homes" and slept overnight on the church lawn.

Here's a glimpse of the event.

First up, Jimmy's cardboard box home.


Participants got very creative!


We even had a cardboard box "mini" church.



Blee had an awesome time hanging out with his church family.

My November Guest. One of the many performers of the night.

This event raised over $5000 for Family Promise. I am so blessed to be a member of this church and I hope that we continue to grow together with the community.
