Cardboard City: a walk through experience showing how homeless families move from despair to hope with working with Family Promise and the churches. The event is being held to raise awareness of the number of homeless families in the community and to raise money for Family Promise of Jacksonville, a nonprofit that helps homeless families become self-sufficient. Participants are asked to register ahead of time and collect contributions or make a donation to attend the event. Some individuals, families, or groups will spend the night in a cardboard box, tent, or in their own car. Everyone does not have to spend the night, they can come for the program portion of the evening if they choose.
