Box City Homeless Fund Fundraiser- Participants (ages 13 and up) will give up their bed and comforts of home for just one night to help their neighbors in need. This is a very unique event and fundraiser that will support the City Code Blue Initiative, Family Promise, and the Bethany Grace Community Church Homeless Programs (Food Pantry, Clothing Closet, Agape Cafe, Shower Ministry, and One Life Fund). Participants raise pledges to become a Citizen of Box City and then sleep in a box overnight to raise money and awareness for homelessness within the city. The event will be start at Bethany Grace Community Church at 7 p.m. There will be special music and a testimonial from our One Life couple who just transitioned from homelessness to a home! Following the presentation, we will break into two groups. Participants under the age of 18 (minimum age is 13) will go to Marlboro Seventh Day Baptist Church for a Youth Box City Event. Participants over 18 years of age (or under with parental supervision) will remain at Bethany Grace Community Church.
