Box City Fundraiser for Family Promise May 21-22, 2022
It’s back live! This year, Box City returns in the fresh air at Hunterdon Central High School. Conceived 12 years ago as an event to draw awareness to the issue of homelessness in Hunterdon County, Box City’s volunteers promise a night of food, fun, and entertainment as they sleep in cardboard boxes and reflect on the blessings of having a home and living without instability.

Each year, Family Promise of Hunterdon County (FPHC) holds its Box City fundraiser to draw attention to the issue of homelessness in our county, region, state, and country. Did you know that nearly 5% of Hunterdon residents live in poverty, and another 18% are ‘asset constrained?’ Those who are asset-constrained often have earned incomes, but they don't earn enough to meet their basic needs for shelter, food, utilities, childcare, and more. It takes only one small crisis to cause a household to become homeless. Family Promise of Hunterdon County works to prevent homelessness and care for those who experience homelessness.
Your sponsorship supports our ability to carry out our mission to advocate for families and individuals experiencing homelessness and guide them to self-sufficiency and permanent housing by mobilizing the community to provide compassionate care, services, and professional support.
