Family Promise Cardboard City

Fri November 12, 2021 at 5:30 pm - Sat November 13, 2021 at 8:00 am

Join us in our fight to keep families together by being a part of Cardboard City 2021. Your support helps to break down the barriers families face, allowing them to return to stability. With your help, we will continue to change lives with 82% of our families returning to stability in housing.

We are hosting our eleventh annual fundraiser, “Cardboard City” on November 12-13 at Lakewood United Methodist Church. This year Cardboard City will provide funds for our shelter and Family Support programs with the goal of stabilizing families and keeping them in homes.

These programs are critical to our response to those impacted by COVID-19 as well as for those at risk of for homelessness.

We are asking participants to set a goal of collecting $100 in donations to change lives. We want to be there for the next family needing help.

New to Cardboard City! It will have both live and virtual components. Onsite participants can spend the night in a cardboard box, a tent, or even in a car to gain an understanding of the challenges of being homeless. The church has outdoor space allowing social distancing. A simple meal will be provided by Lakewood Methodist Church.

Virtual participants will spend the night at home but not in their bed. They will be sleeping on the couch, on the floor, in the car in the driveway, or in a tent. Ask for donations by sharing our giving pageVisit the page to share! 

You can text to give by texting CBCJAX to 44-321
