The City DREAMS

CARDBOARD CITY

Posted

In the wake of “fall back,” it may be a good time to remember that an extra hour of sleep isn’t a reason to celebrate for everyone (one fourth of those experiencing homelessness are children). The seventh annual Cardboard City raises awareness of homelessness and the rage-inducing frustration of navigating social services in this fundraising, cardboard box sleepover (a meal, activities and entertainment provided).
