From Family Promise of Southern Ocean County, an explanation of Shantytown:
Shantytown, a community outreach to the homeless and hungry of Southern Ocean county, will be held at Manahawkin Lake Park from 6:00 pm Saturday, November 19 to 8:00 am Sunday, November 20. The event will be open to the public Saturday evening for a clothing and canned food drive. You may also sponsor participants who will “spend the night in a box, so someone else won’t have to.” All proceeds will benefit local area homeless outreaches and food pantries. Shantytown is a community action project of a coalition of 7 area churches. For further information or to make donations, email Shantytown@cedarrunchurch.org or visit our web page at cedarrunchurch.org. Print a flyer for your bulletin board.
