2015 Family Promise Box City
In Partnership with Cal-State Fullerton's
School of Social Work
Thursday, April 30th, 2015
Can you imagine having to sleep in a box or in a park each night, as do so many homeless men, women and children in the United States? We at Family Promise want to raise awareness of the hardships endured by homeless individuals during their struggle back from a state of homelessness. To do this, we are partnering with Cal-State Fullerton's School of Social Work to create a cardboard "box city" for students.
Anaheim Angels Game - April 11th
Join Family Promise staff, clients and students of Cal State Fullerton for a fun evening of baseball at the Angels vs Royals game on Saturday April 11th in support of Box City. Tickets are $15, and thanks to a partnership with the Angels, ticket proceeds go to supporting Family Promise. Purchase your tickets below. They will be available at the Box Office the night of the game. To Purchase Tickets, Click Here.
Saturday, April 11th - 6:05 pm
Angels Stadium, 2000 E. Gene Autry Way
Anaheim, CA 92806
Purchase Tickets by Thursday, April 2nd.
Participants will create a city of cardboard box shelters, which will become their "home" for the evening. Over the course of the night they will experience what it is like to sleep outside while they participate in educational activities, hear speakers and engage in fun activities designed to raise awareness about the needs of the homeless population. Students will also host a community resource fair on campus, and collect items to be dispersed to local people in need.
4:00 pm - Registration Begins - Arrive, find your box, and make yourself at home!
