Help A Homeless Child, Spend A Night in a Box! Family Promise Cardboard Box City

With the initial launch of my brand new website I would like to immediately take the time to introduce you to a charity event which weighs heavily on my heart. Family Promise of Cape May is launching a special Overnight Charity Event!

Spend 1 Night in a Box to Help a Homeless Child in Need!

This Special Event to help Homeless Children takes place on April 28th, 2017.

Help A Homeless Child, Spend A Night in a Box At Family Promise of Cape May County’s Cardboard Box City!

In order to participate, registration is only available online at:

As many of you know, I am involved with and support the work of Family Promise of Cape May County which seeks to provide assistance to those in need of permanent shelter and employment. On April 28, 2017, I will be sleeping outside with my grandchildren Ernie and Damien (Cardboard Box City) on the grounds of The Lighthouse Church in Middle Township. This event is designed to focus attention on the problem of homelessness in our county.  We are looking for monetary support (pledges or donation). Monies raised will be donated to Family Promise to help further promote their selfless and award-winning work in our community. Please see the attached flyer or go to and click on the events link. Tax deductible donations can be made directly on their website or to me made payable to FPOCMC.
The following images below outline the entire event, as well as the various reward levels for those that participate.

Again, if this event is as close to your heart as it is mine, consider joining us all on April 28th 2017 and spend a night in a box to help homeless children!

Some Additional Information For Those Interested…

From The Family Promise Website: “Cardboard Box City is an OUTDOOR event. It is an afternoon, evening and overnight “camp out style” event, where participants bring and design a CARDBOARD BOX to sleep in overnight, braving the elements, and remembering our homeless children and their families.

We have contests for the best box creations, the most money raised and best slogan created. Dinner will consist of a soup line plus there will be music and games provided. We have added CARS to the event for those who would prefer to sleep overnight in their car.”
