Cardboard Box City 2011

Wingfield Park, Reno, Nevada
Family Promise of Reno/Sparks will host its fourth annual Cardboard Box City as part of an ongoing effort to promote awareness of homelessness. All proceeds from the overnight event will help Family Promise further its efforts to transition families from homelessness into housing. Participants purchase cardboard boxes and spend the night in the park to learn first hand the harsh realities of a life without a solid roof overhead.
