This weekend check out "Cardboard Box City" at Bengal Field

LEWISTON, ID - An empty field will once again turn into a 'Cardboard Box City' this Friday night.

The annual event put on by Family Promise shines light on homelessness within the L-C Valley. This year's event will be held at Bengal Field. Family Promise Executive Director Steve Thomas encourages everyone to come out for the great cause.

"Our students that go out and get sponsors and spend the night and also raise money and awareness of the growing number of homeless families," said Thomas. "And we also encourage others to come to see the homeless city that gets built on Bengal Field."

Family Promise helps provide sustainable housing, while also teaching people about home ownership.
