Soup & bread – 6-7pm. Speakers & Live Music 6-9pm. Breakfast for participants the next morning.



*Where is it: “On the grounds of Monmouth Church of Christ”

*Details: Participants in Cardboard Box City raise a minimum of $100 in pledges and contributions and sleep overnight in a cardboard box “home” as a resident of Box City. There will be activities, entertainment and food for participants. Awards will be given to the participants who raise the most money and to the most creative dwelling. Cardboard Box City is open to all: families, adults and children (children must be supervised by an adult), scouting troops (youth to adult ratio 5:1), and youth groups. Participants supply their own dwellings (usually large refrigerator, washer/dryer boxes that can be picked up at appliance stores). There is also the opportunity to be a “virtual resident” by raising the pledges and sleeping at home.
