Homeless for the Homeless
Family Promise of Anderson County will host its Homeless for the Homeless event September 8-9 at the William A. Floyd Amphitheater. This event provides an opportunity for people of all ages to "walk in another's shoes" through a homelessness simulation. Starting Friday, September 8, “Box Families” will live at the amphitheater in the "Box City", overnight, with only a cardboard home and the bare essentials. Your “Box Family” can be any size and any combination of ages. See below for details.
REGISTERING YOUR "BOX CITY FAMILY"
A "Box City Family" is comprised of any number or combination of people. You determine who and how many are in your Box City Family. As individuals or a group, you will raise funds for Family Promise to participate. Each Box City Family member must raise a minimum of $25 (13 years of age & older) or $12 (12 years of age & under) which enables your "family" to compete for awards as well as have the income to purchase goods and services in our poverty simulation.
Thanks to our sponsors from 2016...
