Save the date! On Saturday May 20, 2017 at 6pm, locals will continue the tradition of Box City at Hunterdon Central High School Practice Field in Flemington.
Spend the night sleeping outside in a cardboard box (that you bring with you) to raise funds to support Family Promise of Hunterdon County’s homeless families, and to increase awareness about homelessness in our own community. Everyone is welcome to participate by sleeping out, coming for the evening’s festivities until 11pm, or supporting those that do.
Participants of all ages are welcome including youth groups, sports teams, service groups, and families.
Bring your own box!
Participants will raise a minimum of $30 each, and any participant who raises more than $50 will receive a special Box City prize. Prizes will be awarded to the individuals and teams that raise the most. All proceeds will help prevent homelessness and provide critically important services and housing for homeless families in Hunterdon.
Weather permitting, the event will include an outdoor movie & entertainment. Attendees can bring games, balls, musical instruments, and any other fun activity to help pass the time. Dinner will be provided as well as a light breakfast and plenty of beverages. There are indoor restrooms on site, and the area is very safe.
Not brave enough to sleep in a box all night long? Participant can also choose to leave at 11pm.
