Boxcity raises awareness of homelessness

Sixth Annual Boxcity to raise awareness about homelessness in Bucks County and raise funds for the Red Cross Shelter in Levittown. Members and friends of the Lutheran Church of the Resurrection in Yardley and Family of God Lutheran in Buckingham will sleep outside on Friday, December 4th to raise awareness and funds. The event will be held at the Lutheran Church of the Resurrection 1700 Makefield Road in Yardley PA. The event starts at 6pm with Boxcity set-up. All participants in the sleep-out must attend a preparation night on Sunday November 22, from 5-7pm.

The public is invited to a free concert featuring Christian band, "The Duck Inside" that begins at 8pm. All are welcome. We are asking that you bring a non-perishable food item to be donated to those in need. Red Cross Shelter of Bucks County representatives will join us for the event.
