Keep the Family Promise Box City
Homeless Event in mind for 2014
Once a year Family Promise of Lawton hosts an overnight event
designed to call attention to the situation of homelessness in
the Lawton area. Participants will experience a small example of
what it is like to sleep in a cardboard box, be without standard
conveniences, and have only soup for dinner. We invite
individuals to inquire about the fund-raising event, invite corporations to
consider supporting the event with a corporate sponsorship, and
invite community volunteers to assist with the project.
Date: April 4th and 5thr 2014, Veterans Grove,
Time: Construction of individual box "homes"
can begin as early as noon on Friday and should be complete by
the time the event formally opens at 4:30 p.m.
Registration Cost: $25.00 per individual
sleeping overnight on April 4th
Corporate Sponsorships: Underwriting
sponsorships range from $100 to $4,000. Corporate sponsors
will be publicized at the site and in Box City publications.
